Adler number: omicron,750

[Meaning] whomever it pleases.[1]

Greek Original:
Ὅτῳ γὰρ φίλον: ᾧ τινι ἀρέσκει. ὅτῳ δὲ μὴ τάδ' ἐστιν ἐν γνώμῃ φίλα, κεῖνός τ' ἐκεῖνα στεργέτω, κἀγὼ δὲ ταῦτα. καί, ὅτῳ ἂν αὐτὸν τιμωρήσαιντο. ἀντὶ τοῦ πῶς, καὶ ἀντὶ τοῦ ᾧ τινι.
[1] Same entry in the Synagoge, Lexica Segueriana 321.27, and Photius, Lexicon omicron600 Theodoridis. The headword phrase must be quoted from somewhere; outside these lexica, the only extant instances are in Origen (Contra Celsum/Against Celsus 5.47) and Eusebius (Ecclesiastical History 5.4.3).
[2] Sophocles, Ajax 1039 (web address 1).
[3] Quotation unidentifiable (Adler tentatively attributes it to Aelian); ὅτῳ is an alternative form for ᾧ τινι , dative singular of the indefinite relative or indirect interrogative pronoun ὅστις .
