I'm having the dickens of a time trying to scan line 1:89 in the Iliad. Any help out there?
-- -- | -- u u | -- u u u | -- -- | -- u u | -- --
Obviously something is HORRIBLY wrong in my third foot. Can the "ba" in bareias be long? I'm I crazy? Which syllable I'm I mis-scanning?
Thanks for the help in advance!
