Strange translation in the ABC Dictionary

"仁义礼智 (rén-yì-lǐ-zhì) The four cardinal virtues: humanity; justice; propriety, and wisdom"
But from the characters I don't find the same virtues :
仁 benevolence, compassion
义 justice, righteousness
礼 courtesy, manners
Where does "propriety" come from ???

Oops sorry, I mixed up the words "propriety" and "property". ;o)
Propriety (plural proprieties)
