Adler number: tau,1039

Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] triply.[1]
Homer [writes]: "all is divided into three shares." But "all" is redundant, as in, "the nine all stood up."[2] But "Earth and tall Olympus are something common to all [the gods]." Olympus [is] joined with earth, as [it is] a mountain. But he [sc. Homer] has done the same also in [the] Odyssey: "I inhabit well-seen Ithaca, and a leaf-shaking mountain [called] Neriton [is] in it." For he has separated the mountain from Ithaca. But if Olympus were a heavenly part of the heaven, it would not be common [to all], but proper [to Zeus].[3]
