I can't figure out what [face=SPIonic]au)tou=[/face] means in [face=SPIonic]to\n d' e)/lip' au)tou=[/face]
First I thought it was genitive because of the verb, took leave of him, but then to/n is left out so I decided against that.

Either "there, here" or, some say, "at once."

Several of the demonstratives take an =[face=spionic]ou=[/face] suffix which makes them (like [face=spionic]pou=[/face]) refer to place.
