David’s Performance text

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

ὣς φάτο, μείδησεν δὲ βοὴν ἀγαθὸς Μενέλαϝος,

χειρί τέ μιν κατέρεξεν ἔπος τ᾽ φατ᾽ ἔκ τ᾽ ὀνόμαζεν:

αἵματός εἰς ἀγαθοῖο, φίλον τέκος, οἷ᾽ ἀγορεύεις:

τοιγὰρ ἐγώ τοι ταῦτα μεταστήσω: δύναμαι γάρ.
