David’s Performance text

Syllables in bold are dynamically prominent according to the new theory of the ancient Greek pitch accent. Digammas occasionally obtrude:

αὐτὰρ ἐγὼν ἐπὶ νῆϝας ἅμ᾽ ἀντιθέοις ἑτάροισιν

ϊα, πολλὰ δέ μοι κραδίη πόρφυρε κιόντι.

αὐτὰρ ἐπεί ῥ᾽ ἐπὶ νῆϝα κατήλθομεν ἠδὲ θάλασσαν,

δόρπον θ᾽ ὁπλισάμεσ
