[face=SPIonic]h)= ga\r o)i/omai a)/ndra xolwse/men, o(\j me/ga pa/ntwn[/face].
Pharr in section 1107-6 says (in part) "The subject of an infinitive is usually in the accusative, but may be omitted when it is the subject of the leading verb,..... "

Is this what is happening here? Ie; is the one who is doing the thinking also the subject of [face=SPIonic]xolwse/men [/face](I think I am about to anger the man, who rules....) Or is [face=SPIonic]a)/ndra [/face]the subject (I think that a man will anger him who rules....)

Hi,

I believe it's your first choice: "I expect to anger a man, who rules mightily..."

Cordially,

Paul
