Greek Original:
Οὐχ ἥκιστα: μάλιστα, πάνυ, οὐχ ἧττον. καὶ οὖν τῷ τὸν βασιλέα ἐστοχάσθαι εὖ τῶν μελλόντων, οὐχ ἥκιστα ἀπέβη τά οἱ προβουλευθέντα. καὶ αὖθις: καὶ ἄλλον οὐχ ἥκιστα εἰς αὐτοὺς ἀναρτήσαντες ὄχλον.
Notes:
[1] (cf. eta 174, omicron 853.) Likewise or similarly in other lexica; references at Photius omicron698 Theodoridis.
[2] Quotation unidentifiable.
[3] cf. Sozomen, Historia ecclesiastica 4.20; as Adler notes, the material has been wrongly attributed to Damascius' Life of Isidore (as fr. 298 Asmus; ignored by Zintzen). The passage is quoted more fully at epsilon 813.
