Greek Original:
Προσοχή: ἀκριβὴς ἐπιμέλεια διαίτης. τοῦ ἰδίου σώματος ἐπιμελητικῶς δεῖ ἔχειν ἐμμέτρως, οὔτε ὡς ἄν τις φιλόζῳος οὔτε πρὸς καλλωπισμὸν οὔτε μὴν ὀλιγώρως, ἀλλ' ὥστε διὰ τὴν ἰδίαν προσοχὴν εἰς ὀλίγιστα ἰατρικῆς χρῄζειν φαρμάκων καὶ ἐπιθεμάτων ἐντὸς καὶ ἐκτός.
[1] For the headword, a feminine noun, cf. (e.g.) under epsilon 2608, nu 358, pi 2658, and see generally LSJ s.v. I. In the present context it is presumably generated by the instance (accusative case) in the quotation given; no equivalent entry in other lexica.
[2] An approximation of Marcus Aurelius, Meditations 1.16, transforming the emperor's particular comments about his (adoptive) father into general advice for good living.
