[Meaning] the mind.[1]

Greek Original:
Ἡγεμονικόν: ὁ νοῦς. ἢ τὸ κυριώτατον τῆς ψυχῆς, ἐν ᾧ αἱ φαντασίαι καὶ αἱ ὁρμαὶ γίνονται, καὶ ὅθεν ὁ λόγος ἀναπέμπεται: ὅπερ εἶναι ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ.
[1] From the Synagoge (Lexica Segueriana eta248); also in Photius, Lexicon eta28, and in a Cyrillian entry of Hesychius (eta54). Both terms are frequently used as synonyms, especially in patristic literature.
[2] An almost literal quotation from Diogenes Laertius 7.159 (with slight differences arising from the need to adapt it to the part excerpted from the Synagoge). Diogenes is explaining here the thought of the Stoic philosophers, particularly, in this case, of Sphaerus and Chrysippus (on whom cf. chi 568 and chi 569).
