Greek Original:
Γινόμενα καὶ γενόμενα διαφέρει. τὰ μὲν γὰρ γενόμενα πάντως ἀπέβη, τὰ δὲ γινόμενα ἤτοι ἀποβαίνει ἢ οὔ.
The lexicographer discusses the aspectual difference between the present and aorist participles of γίνομαι (Attic γίγνομαι ). The present participle γινόμενα (neuter plural) refers to events in progress (continuing, beginning, attempted) relative to the time of the main verb; the aorist participle γενόμενα (also neuter plural) refers to accomplished events. This entry derives from gamma 151.
