Perfect active participle of τελέω ?

The perfect active participle of φιλέω is πεφιληκώς, but τελέω is one of those -έω verbs where the ε becomes εσ and not η, by an 's' reappearing which drops between vowels. While writing some Homeric-style Greek poetry, I needed an perfect active participle form of τελέω, so I guessed τετελεσκὼς, as in "οὒκ ὃν πολεμὸν τετελεσκώς " = "not having accomplished his war". Is that an allowed usage?

Cognate themes in SKT and Homeric epic

I would like some feed back on this problem: Nagy sees the Iliad as a demonstration of the aristo Akhaian (no diacritics): Achilles, in the male kleos world. Does Helen have a similar status as kallisto in the Homeric female world?

Grammar and translation issues

"ob id Pandoram nominarunt. Ea data in coniugium Epimetheo fratri; inde nata est Pyrrha, quae mortalis dicitur prima esse creata."

"Because of this, they named her Pandora. This given(?) in union to the brother Epimetheus; Then was born Pyrha, which was said by mortals to be the first created"

Is it correct to translate the "Ea" as a demonstrative adjective to the participle? And because there is no proper verb in the sentence, it confused ...

αἰώνιον in Matthew 25:46, David Bentley Hart

Hart's translation of Matthew 25:46: And these shall go to the chastening of that Age, but the just to the life of that Age.

καὶ ἀπελεύσονται οὗτοι εἰς κόλασιν αἰώνιον, οἱ δὲ δίκαιοι εἰς ζωὴν αἰώνιον.

Apparently he does something similar in Mark 3:29, rendering it "answerable for a transgression in the Age," footnote "an age-long transgression."
