Indeed! voc. without [face=SPIonic]w)=[/face] in such a strange place is odd.something like, aphrodite divided into 2 the body (and then something to do with dionysius and demeter?)
aphrodite obviously subject;
[face=SPIonic]di/xa[/face] the unaugmented homeric/ionic 3rd person singular imperfect of [face=SPIonic]dixa&w[/face], poetic for [face=SPIonic]dixa&zw[/face];
[face=SPIonic]nekro\n[/face] the masculine accusative of the (noun) [face=SPIonic]nekro/j[/face];
and then the genitive names, which would only make sense if you knew the relevant myth (i have no idea)... sorry i couldn't help...

I think it means something like "Without Dionysos and Demeter Aphrodite is (just) a dead body."
