Greek Original:
Αἰκία: ὕβρις ἔμπληγος. καὶ μὴν ἡ ἄλλη αἰκία καὶ ἰσομοιρία τῶν κακῶν ἔχουσά τινα ὅμως τὸ μετὰ πολλῶν κούφισιν, οὐδ' ὣς ῥᾳδία οὐδ' ἐν τῷ παρόντι ἐδοξάζετο.
Notes:
For this sense of the headword see LSJ s.v.
See also alphaiota 168, alphaiota 169; and cf. alphaiota 170, alphaiota 171, alphaiota 172.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica. The adjective ἔμπληγος , otherwise unattested, is appended in the 1968 LSJ Supplement to ἐμπληγής ('mad, rash'), itself a synonym of ἔμπληκτος (for which see under epsilon 1026). However, Hesychius alpha1917 glosses the present headword as πληγή, ὕβρις, βάσανος, μάστιξ , and for the connection with blows see also alphaiota 168, alphaiota 169, alphaiota 170.
