comment When did Phintys say “A woman's particular virtue is modesty . . .”?
"I don't go around attacking your answers and pointing out the many flaws in them" Please do. If there are flaws in my answers, I'd like nothing more than to fix them.

comment When did Phintys say “A woman's particular virtue is modesty . . .”?
The quote is from Phintys' treatise "Περὶ γυναικὸς σωφροσύνης". We don't know exactly when it was written, the language used was a Doric dialect used in the 4th and 3rd centuries BC.

comment When did Phintys say “A woman's particular virtue is modesty . . .”?
This is incorrect, bordering on bs. We don't know who Phintys' father was. Some sources mention Callicrates, others mention Callicratidas (who may or may not have been a Spartan admiral). Even if her father's name was Callicrates, we know absolutely nothing about him. Furthermore, although we don't know exactly when Phintys lived, it was either in the 4th or the 3rd century BC, not in the 5th. Please refrain from posting answers when you have no knowledge of the subject matter.

comment When were the first mosques established in Constantinople?
AFAIK, the first mosque in Constantinople was built in Chalcedon (Kadıköy) when the Ottomans conquered the Asian part of the city in 1353. That's over a century after the first publication of Liber Abaci in 1202.
