Tiresias: The Ancient Mediterranean Religions Source Database

Philo Of Alexandria, Hypothetica, 7.11

nanIs not this a mark of great temperance and self-restraint, derived to them from practice alone, so that they act towards one another with perfect equality, and are able to derive strength from those actions if it be necessary?
