κήρυκας ὑποστρωννύμενοι

ὁμοίως δὲ καὶ οἱ εἰς τὰ θηρία κατακριθέντες ὑπέμειναν δεινὰς κολάσεις, κήρυκας μὲν ὑποστρωννύμενοι καὶ ἄλλαις ποικίλων βασάνων ἰδέαις κολαζόμενοι ἵνα, εἰ δυνηθείη ὁ τύραννος, διὰ τῆς ἐπιμόνου κολάσεως εἰς ἄρνησιν αὐτοὺς τρέψῃ. [Martyrdom of Polycarp, 2.4] ὑποστρώννυω (listed under ὑποστόρεννῦμι in L...

Re: Gal. 4:13-14

For my clarification: this is the "object clause" in question , διʼ ἀσθένειαν τῆς σαρκὸς εὐηγγελισάμην ὑμῖν τὸ πρότερον and this is a "noun phrase", τὸν πειρασμὸν ὑμῶν ἐν τῇ σαρκί μου Correct? Yes, except that I think I would include the ὅτι in the object clause: ὅτι διʼ ἀσθένειαν τῆς σαρκὸς εὐηγγε...

Re: Gal. 4:13-14

Could that type of καὶ work with the Lachmann full stop? Thus, I suppose, remembrance ὅτι διʼ ἀσθένειαν τῆς σαρκὸς εὐηγγελισάμην ὑμῖν τὸ πρότερον provides the time or circumstances for remembrance of τὸν πειρασμὸν ὑμῶν ἐν τῇ σαρκί μου. I doubt that there is any reason why not. I also doubt that it ...

Re: ὄρνις vs ὄρνις

With regard to ἠ ἄνθρωπος, BDAG gives a reference to Herodotus 1.60.5. A bit of context is necessary to get the idea (translation at Perseus): ἐν τῷ δήμῳ τῷ Παιανιέι ἦν γυνὴ τῇ οὔνομα ἦν Φύη, μέγαθος ἀπὸ τεσσέρων πηχέων ἀπολείπουσα τρεῖς δακτύλους καὶ ἄλλως εὐειδής: ταύτην τὴν γυναῖκα σκευάσαντες πα...

Re: Eusebius, Commentary on Isaiah

Ken, I would be interested in attempting to read a selected passage or two. 280 pages of text is too daunting. Andrew

Re: Ἀλώπηξ καὶ βότρυς (Aesop, Perry 15)

I suppose I find myself imagining the fox sauntering off in happy unreality, rather than in bitterness. Certainly the English expression 'sour grapes' does convey bitter disappointment, but that doesn't mean that the tale (lines 1 & 2 of Chantry v.1) has to be read that way. I am not sure that I see...

Re: Gal. 4:13-14

Hi Jonathan, it's the second level of brackets that had made me think that you were putting οὐκ ἐξουθενήσατε οὐδὲ ἐξεπτύσατε and following under oἴδατε - because it's on the same level of indent as ὅτι διʼ ἀσθένειαν τῆς σαρκὸς κ.τ.λ. I suppose a programmer would take the ] on line 6 as signalling th...

Re: Ἀλώπηξ καὶ βότρυς (Aesop, Perry 15)

I think I have read somewhere that τὰ ἐπιμύθια were added later. It seems to me that we have in view here two different ways of responding to a failure to achieve a desired result. One can blame the circumstances - the bunch was exceptionally high, I had a hard day hunting yesterday and am not as st...
