Please excuse the feebleness of this attempt. It is NOT my wish to mislead anyone. I HAVE NO EXPERTISE IN ANCIENT GREEK. I offer this webpage strictly as a composer attempting to set ancient Greek poetry to music, I have this need to see how the poetry is scanned and generally what the words mean. I am using the Loeb Classical Library edition of Homer's Iliad as a reference and source for this fanciful/artistic interpretation. I just want to spur discussion for greater clarity on this subject for which I have no background or expertise.
