On the whole very good, but allow me the opportunity to persuade you on one point.
Xenophon, Oeconomicus Chapter 1, section 10 wrote:ταὐτὰ ἄρα ὄντα τῷ μὲν ἐπισταμένῳ χρῆσθαι αὐτῶν ἑκάστοις χρήματά ἐστι, τῷ δὲ μὴ ἐπισταμένῳ οὐ χρήματα:
I took it in a similar way the first time myself.Wes Wood (literal) wrote:Then these possessions to the one who indeed knows how to use them, to each [of these people] it is property, but to the one who does not know [how to use them], [it is] not property.
It is obvious that there is fixity and variance here, and it is obvious that the desired result is to make a broad reaching statement.
What you are doing and I was doing was taking the variance as the persons. While that is logically possible, and perhaps a way of rendering it in English it is not the way that the Greek takes it. Lets look at two of the previous passages...
Part of section 8 wrote:κἂν ἄρα γέ τις ἵππον πριάμενος μὴ ἐπίστηται αὐτῷ χρῆσθαι, ἀλλὰ καταπίπτων ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ κακὰ λαμβάνῃ, οὐ χρήματα αὐτῷ ἐστιν ὁ ἵππος;
The basic structure is ἐπίστασθαι (+dative of the possession) χρῆσθαι. "to know how to use (such and so) a possession"Part of section 9 wrote:εἴ τις διὰ τὸ μὴ ἐπίστασθαι προβάτοις χρῆσθαι ζημιοῖτο, οὐδὲ τὰ πρόβατα χρήματα τούτῳ εἴη ἄν;
The other structure is (such and such a thing) τῷ (+dative such and so a person) χρήματά ἐστι "(such and such a thing) is wealth to (such and so a person)".
Let's take out the uncertain elements from this part of section 10. The two structures are combined, so first we need to identify what the elements of the basic structure are, thus...
Now let's use that basic structure to build up a few other examples; pigs (χοῖροι), and irrigation systems (ὑδρεύματα)Basic structure marked wrote:ταὐτὰ ἄρα ὄντα (introduce another possession) τῷ μὲν ἐπισταμένῳ (+dative) χρῆσθαι αὐτῶν ἑκάστοις χρήματά ἐστι, τῷ δὲ μὴ ἐπισταμένῳ οὐ χρήματα
Pigs wrote:οἱ ἄρα χοῖροι τῷ μὲν ἐπισταμένῳ χοίροις χρῆσθαι χρήματά ἐστι, τῷ δὲ μὴ ἐπισταμένῳ οὐ χρήματα
In full that would be...
οἱ ἄρα χοῖροι τῷ ἐπισταμένῳ χοίροις χρῆσθαι χρήματά ἐστι, ἀλλὰ οἱ χοῖροι τῷ μὴ ἐπισταμένῳ χοίροις χρῆσθαι χρήματα οὐκ ἐστι
There are many κτήματα (such as χοῖροι and ὑδρεύματα) and to someone who knows how to χρῆσθαι ἑκάστοις of them (αὐτῶν) for him they χρήματά ἐστι. I haven't found a parallel passage to match this structure yet, but I think that ταὐτὰ ... ὄντα ... αὐτῶν ἑκάστοις are neuter plural agreeing with κτήματα.irrigation systems wrote:τὰ ἄρα ὑδρεύματα τῷ μὲν ἐπισταμένῳ ὑδρεύμασιν χρῆσθαι χρήματά ἐστι, τῷ δὲ μὴ ἐπισταμένῳ οὐ χρήματα
May I suggest that re-evaluate the way you have taken αὐτῶν ἑκάστοις as masculine?
