Note:
For detail on these two adjectives -- impossible to differentiate between in English -- see lambda 174. There the gender of the substantivized adjective (often used in contradistinction to τὸ δεξιόν : see e.g. Aelian, De natura animalium 7.8.21; Appian, Libyca 177; Albinus, Epitome doctrinae platonicae 18.1; and see lambda 672) is feminine, implying the noun χείρ 'hand'. In the present instance it is neuter; cf. Hesychius lambda146 and esp. tau1092. See also tau 820.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; ethics; historiography; philosophy
