πλὴν ὅσα κτλ. For ὅσα Eusebius (Praep. Ev. XII 32. 5) read ὅσῳ followed by ἀσθενεστέρα, δὲ ἰσχυροτέρα ἐστί, and the dative was also preferred by Schneider (Addit. p. 38). The neuter plural of ὅσος is however used adverbially as well as the neuter singular; and the dative of ‘amount of difference’ is scarcely to the point. Instead of ἀσθενεστέρα ἰσχυροτέρα we might read (with A^{2}) ἀσθενεστέρα ἰσχυροτέρας. But the reading in the text is preferable, because it lays more stress on the identity of the male and female nature. It is the same nature, only it is stronger in men, and weaker in women. =‘or’ and not ‘than.’
