however, I call consequent orἀκόλουθα goodness, for
instance, is consequent on wisdom: while in regard
to things which merely have taken place afterwards or
will take place I use the term insequent or παρεπόμενα,
though I do not regard the question of terminology
as important. Give them any name you please, as
long as the meaning is clear and it is shown that
the one depends on time, the other on the
nature of things.
