You are right. The idiom I had in mind was APOKRIQEIS . . . EIPEN and in
scanning this too quickly I thought that was what I was looking at here. So
this is not an example which illustrates my question.
On the general question raised by my initial post, I was unable to find any
examples of two fully inflected verbs in the indicative in the same clause
at the same level. I was only searching for adjacent verbs so perhaps with a
little more work I can find an example which will illustrate the question
about verb chaining. If anyone else just stumbles on to an example I would
like to hear about it.
