KATA/STHSON (that's the causative 1 aor.; intransitive ("quasi-passive" as
it is termed in JACT Reading Greek series) 2nd aor. (what I prefer to call
"3rd aor.") would be logically KATASTHQI, but I wonder whether that would
ever appear--perhaps something like STRATHGOS KATASTHQI! "get yourself
elected Strategos!"

set down, krêtêra kathista Hom. Il. 9.202; nêa katastêson bring it to land
