[b-greek] Homeric AUTAR and Attic DE

This is a little off topic.

AUTAR is common in Homer and it appears to have a lot of similarities to DE
in that it can function either as an adversative particle or as a
continuative particle.

What I am wondering about is the dissimilarities. Where does AUTAR differ
from DE and what kind of problems would one run into if one was tempted to
just think DE every time one saw AUTAR?
