Greek Original:
Ἠί̈θεος: ἄφθαρτος πρὸς γυναῖκας. καὶ ἐν Ἐπιγράμμασι: ἠϊθέοις οὐκ ἔστι τόσος πόνος, ὁππόσος ἡμῖν ταῖς ἀταλοψύχοις. καὶ ὁ ἴσος τοῖς θεοῖς.
Notes:
[1] The headword (a single word in the Greek) is glossed thus in Timaeus' Platonic Lexicon. Its entry there might be generated by the fact that Plato uses the word three times in his Laws, but Timaeus draws on other authors besides Plato, and in this instance the source might be Homer, e.g. Iliad 22.127; see Latte on Hesychius eta252, and cf. Theodoridis on Photius, Lexicon eta82.
[2] Greek Anthology 5.297.1-2; cf. alpha 4314.
