Adler number: alpha,1290
Translated headword: Alcmanic form
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] the one which is frequent in Alcman, [i.e.] arranging the verb in between the nouns on both sides. And [sc. this also occurs] in Homer: "where the rivers Simoeis flow together and Scamander."
Greek Original:
Ἀλκμανικὸν εἶδος: ὅπερ πεπλεόνακε παρὰ Ἀλκμᾶνι, τὸ κατ' ἀμφότερα ῥῆμα μεταξὺ τῶν ὀνομάτων τεταχέναι. καὶ παρ' Ὁμήρῳ: ᾗχι ῥοὰς Σιμόεις συμβάλλετον ἠδὲ Σκάμανδρος.
Notes:
The quotation is Homer, Iliad 5.774 (web address 1), and this is from the scholia on the line (cf. Eustathius ad loc.). Alternatively known as the Alcmanic figure. For further examples see the scholia to Iliad 18.514, 20.138, Odyssey 10.513; Herodian, de figuris 101.19ff.; Porphyrius, Quaestiones Homericae i.34.8ff.
For Alcman see alpha 1289.
