Headword: Ἐπὶ σχολῆς
Adler number: epsilon,2654
Translated headword: at leisure
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
To pursue philosophy in an unbusied manner,[1] meaning on a good occasion or at a work-free [time].[2]
Greek Original:
Ἐπὶ σχολῆς: ἀπραγμόνως φιλοσοφεῖν, ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐπὶ εὐκαιρίας ἢ ἀργίας.
Notes:
[1] The entry up to this point -- the first four words in Greek, Adler's headword phrase included -- was perhaps intended as a headword phrase, since the same four words are found, with only a slight difference in word order, at the beginning of Julian, Epistle 8 (noted by Adler): nothing is more advantageous to mankind than φιλοσοφεῖν ἐπί σχολῆς ἁπραγμόνως . The source could also [WH] be a comment on Cassius Dio 61.10.5 (= Constantine Porphyrogenitus, Excerpta de virtutibus 2.348) where the phrase ἐπὶ σχολῆς φιλοσοφεῖν occurs.
[2] Adler cites for comparison a scholion on Plato, Euthyphro 6C (where the phrase 'at leisure' occurs, and the gloss is ἐπὶ τῆς παρὰ τοῖς πολλοῖς λεγομένης εὐκαιρίας ). See sigma 1802, end.
