The analysis of Stobaeus’ chapter On forbearance (3,19 Περὶ ἀνεξικακίας), in the light of Aristotle’s definition of the three degrees of anger, shows that the virtue opposite to anger was intended by the anthologist as the ability of controlling it rather than as its total elimination; in the texts quoted by Stobaeus it concerns chiefly verbal insults, and seems not to rule out the possibility of revenge, provided that the anger is justified by good reasons and under control of logos.
