ἀργόν, fem.: in good Attic prose as well as verse this adj. is of two terminations, and the v. l. “ἀργήν” here represents only a later usage: Aristotle (if our MSS. may be trusted) wrote in Meteor. I. 14 (Berl. ed. p. 352 a 13) “ἡ μὲν γὰρ” (“χώρα”) “ἀργὴ γέγονε”, yet in Oecon. 2(Berl. ed. p. 1348 a 3) “τῆς χώρας ἀργοῦ γενομένης”.
