γνώμηςοὐκ ἄπειρος. The reading has been unjustly suspected. “γνώμη”, ‘judgment,’ or ‘discretion,’ is here regarded as an influence moulding the character from without. The phrase means, then, ‘not uninformed by discretion,’—not unversed in its teachings. Cp. Plat. Rep. 519Bτοὺς ἀπαιδεύτους καὶ ἀληθείας ἀπείρους”, ‘uninformed by truth.’
