Found some helpful corrections for me. Thank you. For you...

Υou left out a few sequences of words, or your electronic copy is different from my physical copy. Missing some words from...

φιλοῖσθε, φιλοῦ, φιλείσθω, φιλεῖσθε, φιλείσθων, ἐφιλούμην, ἐφιλοῦ, ἐφιλεῖτο, ἐφιλούμεθα,
παιδευθέν, παιδευσαμένου, παιδευσάμενον, παιδευσάμενοι, παιδευσαμένων, παιδευσαμένοις

χώρᾳς should be χώρᾳ

Like I said before... wall of text.

She should have broken these things up... 1.a.... b.... c.... etc. It's just too much for my eyes to follow such a huge group of words without missing some.

You demonstrate a load of patience by going through and comparing yours to mine.

Hi! I am sort of working my way through Dickey's text behind y'all as a refresher course for myself and using your work as a helpful foil to my own where I'm wanting for an answer key. Glancing through this section, I thought it worth mentioning (for posterity if nothing else) that I think there is a small error in both posted sets of answers. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I'd think that the nom. sing. of νίκη would be νῖκαι, and not νίκαι as indicated above--correct?

Thanks!

That's right, and I think you meant nominative plural. The -ι- is long, and the -αι is short, hence the circumflex.

πέντε Ἰσθμοῖ νῖκαι five victories at the Isthmian games PIND. P. 7.14
