Homer uses this in four ways: ἔσσεται , ἐσσεῖται , ἔσται .
Greek Original:
Ἔσται: τετραχῶς τούτῳ χρᾶται Ὅμηρος: ἔσσεται, ἐσσεῖται, ἔσται.
Similar material, according to Adler, in Anecdota Oxoniensia 1.136.6 and 1.175.6 (the latter giving rise to entries in the Etymologicum Gudianum and, post-Suda, the Etymologicum Magnum). Compare also epsilon 3126.
Only three forms for the epic third person singular, future, of εἰμί are cited here; the fourth would be ἔσεται . In order to make the entry coherent, one may therefore either add ἔσεται to the list given (so Aemilius Portus, Tittman, Gaisford, as in the An.Ox.) or else modify 'four ways'. Adler reports that ms T has 'many ways' (πολλαχῶς ), and Kuster emended to 'three ways' (τριχῶς ), as in Etym.Magn..
Keywords: dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic
