If I were to retain any niggling doubts (=past contrary-to-fact
conditional), it is caused by the personal character of the referent in
Mark 1:23 whereas the English examples Carl gives ("with a glandular
condition" and "with a ugly scar" are not personal). Yet your points are
well taken and no doubt correct. Perhaps: "A man (afflicted) with an
unclean spirit" may be a good rendering then?
Not to prolong this too far, but would the first EN phrase in Gal. 6:1
(PROLHMFQH ANQRWPOS EN TINI PARAPTWMATI, "a man discovered in some
transgression") have the same significance (i.e., someone who "has" a
transgression; "a man characterized by some transgression")?
