Adler number: omicron,627

Vetting Status: high
A [ὅρος ] definition is an analytical statement expressed precisely; [1] or [it is] an account [of a peculiar characteristic].[2] But an outline [ὑπογραφή ] is a statement that introduces [us] to the things by means of an impression, or [it is] a definition which conveys in a simpler form the power of the definition.[3]
Definition differs from demonstration. See also under [the entry] 'demonstration'.[4]
Greek Original:
Ὅρος: ὅρος ἐστὶ λόγος κατ' ἀνάλυσιν ἀπαρτιζόντως ἐκφερόμενος: ἢ ἡ ἀπόδοσις. ὑπογραφὴ δέ ἐστι λόγος τυπωδῶς εἰσάγων εἰς τὰ πράγματα, ἢ ὅρος ἁπλούστερον τὴν τοῦ ὅρου δύναμιν προσενηνεγμένος. διαφέρει δὲ ὅρος ἀποδείξεως. καὶ ζήτει ἐν τῷ ἀπόδειξις.
