Headword: Ta tôi autôi ta auta, kai allêlois einai dei ta auta
Adler number: tau,152
Translated headword: things which have the same relationship to the same [thing] must also be in the same relationship to each other
Vetting Status: high
It is a geometrical definition, claiming this: since character made you a friend, but a certain man and his nature [made] him [a friend], and both are friends of one [sc. me], therefore you must be attached to each other, just as I am in the middle. Thus you see I connect you to each other.
Greek Original:
Ta tôi autôi ta auta, kai allêlois einai dei ta auta: geômetrikos estin horos touto axiôn, epeidê se men ho tropos epoiêse philon, ton de ho deina kai hê phusis, amphô de henos este philoi: dei dê kai allêlôn humas exêrtêsthai, kathaper emou tou mesou. kathaptô toigaroun humas allêlois.
The headword phrase was not identified by Adler but is identifiable via the TLG as Synesius, Epistles 93.16 (quoted again, post-Suda, by Gennadius Scholarius). The origin of this commentary on it, however, is unknown.
