What Nestor would say on learning of Ulysses' return

Texts

τίνας ἂν εἴποι λόγους Νέστωρ ἀκούσας Ὀδυσσέα ἐπανελθόντα
ἐσθλὸς ἀνὴρ φύγε πόντον ἀπηνέα καὶ μετὰ μόχθον
ἐς πάτρην ἀφίκανεν;, ἐμοῦ δέ κε φέρτερος εἴη,
εὖ δεδαὼς πτόλιάς τε καὶ ἤθεα καὶ νόον ἀνδρῶν.

— Paton edition

The good man has escaped the merciless sea, and
after toil has reached his fatherland, and he must be
my better, as he has become well acquainted with
cities and customs and the minds of men.
