Some verbs carry the concept of intransitiveness even though they are
not state of being verbs such as eimi or ginomai. Verbs of growing and
remaining often have both a transitive an intransitive function. It is
possible, even likely, that kaloi is a predicate nominative describing
the understood subject of the verb menoin.
