Pharr: Lesson 16, E-G, #6

Lesson 16, E-G, #6:

The two sons of Atreus, marshallers of the people(s), are entreating Priam, but he will slight them.

[face=SPIonic])Atrei/+da kosmh/tore law=n li/ssesqon Pri/amon, tou\j d' a)tima/sei.[/face]

I am not sure about the second clause.

Thank you (William :) ),

Fanatical ranting is not just fine because it's eloquent. What if I ranted for the extermination of a people in an eloquent manner, would that make it fine? Rather, ranting, be it fanatical or otherwise, is fine if what is said is true and just. ---PeterD, in reply to IreneY and Annis
