Headword: Μακαρία τῶν βίων
Adler number: mu,50
Translated headword: blessedness of [people's] lives
Vetting Status: high
and [o] blessed man for [your] habits.
Greek Original:
Μακαρία τῶν βίων, καὶ μακάριε τῶν τρόπων.
For the idiom cf. omega 79.
If reliably transmitted, the primary headword phrase includes either the nominative (or vocative) of the abstract noun μακαρία or else the feminine nominative (or vocative) singular of the related adjective μακάριος ; and the secondary one appears to include the masculine vocative singular of that adjective.
Adler suggests Symeon Metaphrastes as a possible source. In any event, neither phrase is attested elsewhere.
