<div>KATA/STHSON (that's the causative 1 aor.; intransitive (&quot;quasi-passive&quot; as it is termed in JACT Reading Greek series) 2nd aor. (what I prefer to call &quot;3rd aor.&quot;) would be logically KATASTHQI, but I wonder whether

<div>set down, krÍtÍra kathista Hom. Il. 9.202; nÍa katastÍson bring it to land</div>
