Example text

V. e. neither w ing nor feather but a broader m eaning that encom passes both and is not easily translated. I w ou ld render πτερό εις, then, as ‘ flying easily’ or ‘equipped to fly’, applicable to both w ords and arrows and suggesting swift motion. ) H o w then should w e understand άπτερος? A n y idea that the μύθος ju st spoken does not fly easily to its goal is refuted b y the context: Penelope and E urycleia clearly receive the m essage, and proceed to obey it. W e m ust choose, finally, to accept the first m eaning, ‘swift’, with intensive alpha.

B. Hainsworth, Glotta xxxviii(ig6o), 263—8). In sim ilar situations we find a verse w hose first h alf says ‘so he (she) spoke’ and w hose second half describes the effect of this utterance using the w ord μύθος. Cf. ώ ς εφατ Α λκίνοος (Αντίνοος, Αμφίνοος), τοίσιν δ ’ επιήνδανε μύθος (7 X )i ώ ϊ φάτο Σαρττήδων, δάκε δε φρένας "Εκτορι μύθος (II. ν 493); ώ? φάτο Πουλυδάμας, &8e S’ "Εκτορι μύθος άττήμων (2 X).

T h e y are followed b y S. W est on Od. v. Leaf, Iliad, on v 453 (= xii 426), gloss­ ing the obscure λα ισή ϊα πτερόεντα used o f shields, suggests ‘fluttering’ as the m eaning that suits all the applications o f πτερά εις, and it is attractive to avoid a forced choice betw een ‘w inged’ and ‘feathered’ as the sole alternatives. v. e. neither w ing nor feather but a broader m eaning that encom passes both and is not easily translated. I w ou ld render πτερό εις, then, as ‘ flying easily’ or ‘equipped to fly’, applicable to both w ords and arrows and suggesting swift motion.
