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
Translation:
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.
Note:
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.
