Abstract: Given a real number $ \alpha $ defined by

$\displaystyle \frac{1}{{\varphi (1) + }}\frac{1}{{\varphi (2) + }} \cdots ,$

where $ \varphi $ is a function from the natural numbers to the rational numbers larger than or equal to one which satisfies certain restrictions on the growth of the numerators and denominators of the numbers $ \varphi (n)$, then a lower bound is found in terms of $ \varphi $ for the diophantine approximation of $ \alpha $.
