Not really--that term "epexegetical" when applied to an infinitive I have
preferred to use only when an infinitive clarifies an adjective and is
therefore used adverbially. Here EINAI is more simply the verb of indirect
statement linking the subject of indirect statement, TA EQNH, with the
predicate adjectives SUGKLHRONOMA, SUSSWMA, SUMMETOCA.
>(2) In translation, should we then supply the verb "are" (or some form of

Yes, that is exactly right.
