I'd like to ask you a question about a difficult -and famous- point in Thucydides. In [face=spionic]Qoukudi/dou I(storiw=n[/face] V.89.10 (from Melians' dialogue), we read [face=spionic]ta\ dunata\ d' ec w=)n e(ka/teroi a)lhqw=j fronou=men diapra/ssesqai[/face]. Which verb is the phrase [face=spionic]ta\ dunata\[/face] related to? Isn't [face=spionic]diapra/ssesqai[/face] the object of [face=spionic]fronou=men[/face]? Of course, in order to answer my question, one must bear in mind the whole text of this chapter. Thank you in advance.
