Ἐπαισχές: αἰσχύνης παραίτιον. κἀμοὶ μὲν ἐπαισχές ἐστι τὸ πρᾶγμα καὶ βλαβερόν, κἀκείνῳ πολὺ αἴσχιον καὶ βλαβερώτερον. τῆς μὲν προσεδρίας ἐπιπόνου οὔσης, τῆς δὲ ἀποχωρήσεως ἐπαισχοῦς.
Notes:
The headword adjective is in the neuter singular, presumably extracted from the first quotation given.
[1] Quotation not identified by Adler, but it is an approximation of part of Nicolaus of Damascus FGrH 90 F5 (F12 Müller) = Excerpta de virtutibus 335.20 ff.; cf. epsilon 2864, sigma 1230.
[2] Quotation not identified by Adler, but Favuzzi [see under delta 654] 221-222 now proffers a link with Cassius Dio (56.13.1, ἥ τε γὰρ προσεδρεία καὶ ματαία καὶ ἐπικίνδυνος ἐγιγνετο καὶ ἡ ἁποχώρησις ἐπαισχὴς ἐφαίνετο ).
