A temporal adverb.[1]
"Now you must send every last line from from yourself, and brandish a fervid spirit and ineluctable arguments by which you may overcome this person; for he is a versatile man, and one who fashions undifficult pathways out of difficulties." 'Line' [is] rope. He is speaking figuratively as though in reference to a mast: you must manipulate all the riggings for the sake of [over]coming him.[2]
Greek Original:
Νῦν: χρονικὸν ἐπίρρημα. νῦν δεῖ σε πάντα δὴ κάλων ἐξιέναι σεαυτοῦ, καὶ λῆμα θούριον φορεῖν καὶ λόγους ἀφύκτους, ὅτοισι τόνδ' ὑπερβαλῇ: ποικίλος γὰρ ἁνὴρ κἀκ τῶν ἀμηχάνων πόρους εὐμηχάνους πορίζων. Κάλων, σχοινίον. τροπικῶς δὲ ὡς ἐπὶ τοῦ ἱστοῦ λέγει, δεῖ τὰ ἄρμενα πάντα κινεῖν ὑπὲρ τοῦ γενέσθαι αὐτοῦ.
