I was reading Richmond Lattimore's introduction to Agamemnon yesterday and
came across a reference to the Iliad which caught my eye.
Homer, in describing KALXAS (Iliad 1:70) says:
hOS HiDH TA T' EONTA TA T' ESSOMENA PRO T' EONTA
Something about the structure of this line reminded me of the formula from the
hO WN KAI hO HN KAI hO ERXOMENOS
I have one question about these two passages. How is the temporal information
in each of these made manifest by the syntax? I will reword the question a
little. What syntactical indicators are present here that the authors used to
encoded the temporal information?
This is not a trick question. I really would like to know the answer to this.
