ἀντία Τηλεμάχοιο καὶ ἐγγύθι Πηνελοπείης
τίπτε, πολυφράδμων, πολυταρβέα χεῖρα τιταίνεις;
οὐκ ἐρέει μνηστῆρσι τεόν ποτε νεῦμα τιθήνη.

Comment

#1

Paton writes that on the first sentence "In presence of Telemachus and near Penelope, why, wise Odysseus, dost thou stretch out thy hand in terror ?" that this was in reference to Odysseus signing to the nurse not to reveal who he is. Od. xix. 479.
