Dear list-members,

Reading Erasmus's Annotations on the New Testament, I came across an
interesting emendation he proposes on the word POLU in Rom 3:2: "... it
appears that POLLH should be read, ... to modify ("ut sit epitheton") ...
WFELEIA." My question is not text-critical, though, but grammatical:

What connection does POLU have, grammatically, with the preceding question
(vs. 1)? Does it concord with TO PERISSON, and is that the only option? In
other words: does Erasmus have a point here, in that POLU, obviously refering
to WFELEIA too, is a bit strange?
