τὸ κόσμιον. Hurried movement in public was contrary to Athenian notions of “εὐκοσμία”. Cp. Charmides p. 159 B “εἶπεν ὅτι οἱ δοκοῖ σωφροσύνη εἶναι τὸ κοσμίως πάντα ποιεῖν καὶ ἡσυχῇ, ἔν τε ταῖς ὁδοῖς βαδίζειν καὶ διαλέγεσθαι”. Dem. or. 37 § 55 “τοιοῦτος...ἐγὼ ὁ ταχὺ βαδίζων καὶ τοιοῦτος σὺ ὁ ἀτρέμας”. 873 For the place of ὦν at the end of the v., cp. O. T. 298, O. C. 14, Tr. 819.
