Iliad 2:205-206

Line 205 ends with a full stop, and there is some question about the validity of line 206.
Without line 206 the thought of line 205 seems to be incomplete.

Iliad 2:200-201

I don't understand how the translations (on Perseus) I checked come up with; 'listen to the word of others who are better than you.'
I came up with; 'listen to the word of others, they are better than you.'
In order for it to mean listen to those who are better than you oi(\ fe/rteroi would have to be in the dative. (or accusative -> obey ...

eorgas / eeipen

e)orgaj

According to Munro, e)orgaj < "weworgas". Presumably this (like leloipa is a perfect formation? In the context (Iliad III.57) it would work fairly well as a stative.

e)eipen

Though I see it all the time, I'm still not sure what's going on here. I thought the stem was "wep", so an aorist formation would be ewep- > eip (as in Attic?). Whence then has come the extra epsilon?

thanks as ever

Iliad 2:195

mh/ ti xolwsa/menoj r(e/ch| kako\n ui(=aj )Axaiw=n.
I understand every word but I am not sure about which word belongs to which.
Does mh/ belong to ti (not anything) or to the participle (not angering) or the the finite verb (not doing).
Does ti belong to kako/n (something evil)?

Want to be a Pharr guide anyone?

Some Textkitters have expressed some interest in starting another Pharr reading group.
The problem is that the more or less regular guides are going to suffer from burn-out if they were to get roped in to leading yet another group.
I am a "graduate" of the Pharr-a group. That does not necessarily qualify me to be a guide, but I think I would be able to do the work of a quide assistant. (I would ...

U)PE/R

In cunlliffe's lexicon, in the entry u(pe/r it says [in form comp. fr. u(po/]
Does this really mean that the one is (or was) a comparative form of the other?

Iliad 2:35

I can't figure out what au)tou= means in to\n d' e)/lip' au)tou=
First I thought it was genitive because of the verb, took leave of him, but then to/n is left out so I decided against that.
Anyone?
