Iliad 1:5 & 1:20

Homeric Greek and Early Greek Poetry



Iliad 1:5 & 1:20

This is from the beginning of the Iliad. On the fifth verse we have
οἰωνοῖσί τε πᾶσι, Διὸς δ'ἐτελείετο βουλή
Or do we? Should it be instead
οἰωνοῖσί τε δαῖτα, Διὸς δ'ἐτελείετο βουλή?
In the Teubner (also in Loeb) West chooses πᾶσι, an opinion which must ...

the Sunday's 'Can't be Sure' in Ancient Greek

England, my country, the home of the free, such miserable weather.
But England's as happy as England can be. Why cry?
