Ellipsis examples

Can anyone direct me to examples in Greek which parallel the Latin grave inscriptions, e.g.: quod tu, et ego, quod ego, et omnes, where the form of "to be" must be supplied in different cases?

Even better would be any examples from the Iliad but I am not holding my breath; at this point I would be happy for a necessary future.

To One and All--

Aoidoi - Three Homeric Hymns: Artemis, Hephestus, Demeter

There are three new poems available today, Homeric Hymns.

I worked up the smaller two, to Artemis and to Hephestus, to provide a contrast to the very much larger Hymn to Demeter which Nicholas Swift (aka. swiftnicholas here) did.

A lot of work went into the Hymn to Demeter — all ~495 lines of it — but I hope the results will help more people to read this poem. Because it's so large, one thing ...

πτ vs. φθ

Especially since Vox Graeca says that it's probably not the case that both consonants of φθ were aspirated. I thought maybe the Greeks heard the aspiration and assigned it to both, but then there's example like πφ (at least in Σαπφώ), and I came across ...
