Lesson 106

Odyssey passage exercise:

#382 οἱ μὲν μοχλὸν ἑλόντες ἐλάϊνον, ὀξὺν ἐπ᾽ ἄκρῳ,
#383 ὀφθαλμῷ ἐνέρεισαν· ἐγὼ δ᾽ ἐφύπερθεν ἐρεισθεὶς
#384 δίνεον, ὡς ὅτε τις τρυπᾷ δόρυ νήϊον ἀνὴρ
#385 τρυπάνῳ, οἱ δέ τ᾽ ἔνερθεν ὑποσσείουσιν ἱμάντι
#386 ἁψάμενοι ἑκάτερθε, τὸ δὲ τρέχει ἐμμενὲς αἰεί.
#387 ὣς τοῦ ἐν ὀφθαλμῷ πυριήκεα μοχλὸν ἑλόντες
#388 δινέομεν, τὸν δ᾽ αἷμα περίρρεε θερμὸν ἐόντα.
#389 πάντα δέ οἱ βλέφαρ᾽ ἀμφὶ καὶ ὀφρύας εὗσεν ἀϋτμὴ
#390 γλήνης καιομένης, σφαραγεῦντο δέ οἱ πυρὶ ῥίζαι.

#389. βλέφαρ᾽ = βλέφαρα

Translation:

Seizing the olive-wood stake, sharpened at the edge, they thrust (it) indeed into (his) eye; and I pressed (it) from above (lit: having pressed) and twirled (it), as when some man drill the beam of a ship with a drill, and others twirl beneath with a strap tied at both sides, so it runs unceasing ever; thus we seized (lit: having seized) the fire-sharpened stake and twirled (it) into his eye, and the blood flowed about it (the stake) being warm. And all the vapor of the burning eyeball tinge around his lids and brows; and the roots (of his eye) crackled by the fire.

English to Greek exercises:

1. He said that the vapor of the burning eye quickly destroyed also all his eyelid and eyebrow.

ἔνισπεν ἀϋτμὴν καίοντος ὀφθαλμοῦ τάχα ὄλεσαι καὶ ἑο βλέφαρον τε ὀφρύα τε.

2. Blood seemed to hide the end of the olive-wood beam, and it flowed upon the ground, as when dark wine pours out of a bag.

αἷμα δόκησε κεῦθειν ἄκρον δούρατος ἐλαῖνου, καὶ ῥεῖν ἐπὶ χθονός, ὡς ὅτε μέλας οἶνος ἐκσεύει ἀσκοῦ.

3. The cruel Cyclops himself then learned what all the best and wisest men always knew: one who does wrong must suffer.

σχέτλιος Κύκλωψ μάθετο τὸ ὁ πάντες ἄριστοι καὶ σοφοὶ ἀνέρες αἰεὶ ἵσαν· χρὴ ἀδικέοντα πάσχειν.
