The key phrase is EXHRAMMENHN ECWN THN CEIRA, where ECWN ties together
EXHRHMMENHN and THN CEIRA. [Just as EXHRAMMENHN ties together what preceeds
and follows it.]
So that 'being withered the hand' or better, 'the hand being withered' would
seem to slide easily into what might be called idiomatic attribution of
possession, because of ECWN, a participle that clearly 'has' [possession],
The possesive ECWN idiomatically 'distributes' its force to what it ties
together, giving us in English "Having his hand withered", rather than
'having his withered hand.'
The hand clearly has a very distinctive attribute, does it not? It is
withered!! Hence EXHRAMMENHN is attributive of CIERA.
Am I making any sense of this for you??
