Oops. I see your point. I was treating hOLA as if it were an adverb --
sloppy of me.
But now another point: in considering the use of the adjective
substantively, I looked it up and found it spelled hELLHNIKOS -H -ON rather
than hELLHNKOS -H -ON. Is the latter an attested alternative spelling?
hH KAINH` DIAQH'KH: h'OLH' hELLHNIKH' ESTIN MOI
hH KAINH` DIAQH'KH: h'OLH' hELLHNIKH' MOI hH
