"[...] because there arose a substantial appearance of prosperity in both their individual lives and in public affairs when the resources had been transferred from Macedonia to Rome."[1]

Greek Original:
Ἐπίφασις. διὰ τὸ πολλὴν ἐπίφασιν γενέσθαι τῆς εὐδαιμονίας περί τε τοὺς κατ' ἰδίαν βίους καὶ περὶ τὰ κοινά, τῶν ἐκ Μακεδονίας μετακομισθεισῶν εἰς τὴν Ῥώμην χορηγιῶν. καὶ αὖθις: κατὰ μὲν τὴν ἐπίφασιν ἐποίει τινά: τῇ δὲ ἀληθείᾳ περὶ τὰς παρασκευὰς εἶχεν.
For the nominative-case headword, here unglossed (and presumably generated by the accusatives in the quotations given), see already epsilon 2745.
