Greek display:    

Headword: Ὅσον βιώσιμον
Adler number: omicron,699
Translated headword: as far as [is] livable
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] as far as [sc. it is possible or appropriate] to live.
Greek Original:
Ὅσον βιώσιμον: ὅσον ζῆσαι.
Note:
Same entry in other lexica; references at Photius omicron559 Theodoridis. The headword phrase must be quoted from somewhere -- perhaps Damascius, Life of Isidore fr. 248 Zintzen (147 Asmus), though Adler deemed the attribution rash (and the phrase does also occur in Gregory of Nazianzus, In laudem Athanasii PG 35.1124).
