Fragment 151

Martin Ferguson Smith restored Fragment 151 (NF 97) as:

[ὅπως ἡδονή, μη]-
[κέτι τῶ]ν διαλειμμα[ά]-
[των παρ]όντων, αὐτο-
[μάτως] προφαν βλά-
[πτουσα μ]ηδὲν τὴν φύ-
σιν.ω τὰ] γὰρ ὑγρὰ τροφεῖα

and translated it as:

... [in order that], when the interstices [are no longer there, pleasure] may appear of its of its own accord without doing any harm to the constitution. V For liquid [nourishment] ...
