Help with Georgic 1.167

Postby brometheus » Wed Apr 26, 2017 12:13 am

I am having some trouble with this line:
omnia quae multo ante memor provisa repones
(G. 1.167)
I have been staring at this line for a while. Somebody called H. Rushton Fairclough (my Loeb edition) once translated it as "All of these you will remember to provide and store away long beforehand..."

As far as I can tell, ante is adverbial here, but I just can't figure out how memor fits in. Is it some kind of interjection ("Remember!") I am unfamiliar with? It is not the subject or object of the verb...so what is going on here?

Thank you!

Memor is actually predicated of the subject: you, being mindful etc.
