This appears to be an exception to Sharps. It appears that you place
great merit in the fact that "there are no exceptions in the GNT,"
... well, maybe one now ;) Therefore you should also embrace Smart's
rule. Is this the case? >>
Actually Sharp's rule does not apply here because TON MONON ALHQINON QEON is
in apposition to SE and hON APESTEILAS is in aposition to IHSOUN CRISTON. KAI
links SE to IHSOUN CRISTON. Even if the KAI did link TON MONON ALHQINON QEON
to hON APESTEILAS, the latter is a relative clause and therefore fall outside
the parameters of the construction.
