<br /><br />It belongs to an indirect question (subjunctive denoting a subordinate clause). Translation ok.<br /><br />Why is consecutus sit in the subjunctive?
<br /><br />Plural nominative, subject of pervenerint : "his deeds were finally hated" (or something more English)<br /><br />My problem is with eius opera.
<br /><br />Eius = Lysandri, gen after hospitio "his..."<br />se : antecedent is the subject of confirmarat i.e.qui; se is sing acc, subject of the infinitive fore<br />illius = one more time Lysandri genitive after proprium "peculiar to him", "his property".<br />proprium is masc. sing. accusative, predicate adjective of se<br /><br />So (in French) : "sinon celui qui était lié à lui par un lien d'hospitalité ou celui qui avait assuré qu'il lui appartenait par un lien de fidélité." (More ore less : "except the one who was tied to him by hospitality or the one who had guaranteed that he was his faithful henchman")nisi qui aut eius hospitio contineretur aut se illius fore proprium fide confirmarat.<br /><br />I can't keep straight who eius, se, and illius each refers to. And what does proprium go with?
