It is late! Please note, HO should be hO. I corrected it below. The
problem is translating one form of transliteration to another form of
transliteration and being punchy while doing it.
> Trying to figure out where the plain is in the following:
> PROS QALATTHS MEN, KATA DE MESON PASHS PEDION HN,
> hO DH PANTWN PEDIWN KALLISTON ARETHI TE
> hIKANON GENESQAI LEGETAI
> Is the plain in the middle of the island (mentioned earlier), i.e. in
> the center on both axies or is it extended along the middle of all the
> island. KATA DE MESON PASHS is the issue. I am leaning toward the
> notion of extension, something like "down (or along) the middle of all
> the island".
> And one more off topic question before I get back to NT Greek, what is
> the hO doing in the second line? Don't read much Plato and the hO seems
> sort of hung out in deep space here.
