Spurious Epictetus Quote?

Post by Wes Wood » April 26th, 2017, 2:15 pm

"He is a drunkard who takes more than three glasses though he be not drunk."

I was searching for the citation of an Epictetus quote last night, and I noticed that Perseus' Greek Text is shorter than its corresponding English translation. Does anyone know what the actual source of this quote is? Or, better yet, does someone know where to access the Greek text that is missing?
Ἀσπάζομαι μὲν καὶ φιλῶ, πείσομαι δὲ μᾶλλον τῷ θεῷ ἢ ὑμῖν.-Ἀπολογία Σωκράτους 29δ
