Vetting Status: high
[ἦσθα means the same as] ἦς , [i.e.] you existed.[1]
"For you were responsive to [my] prayers, then propitious for [my] travels."[2]
Greek Original:
Ἦσθα: ἦς, ὑπῆρχες. ἦσθα γὰρ εὐχωλῇσι κατήκοος, ἔνθα κελεύθοις ἵλαος.
[1] The headword is imperfect of εἰμί , second person singular. (For the alternative form see eta 568.) Same entry in Hesychius eta884, where Latte claims the headword as quoted from Homer, Iliad 5.898.
[2] Greek Anthology 6.199.3-4 (Antiphilos of Byzantium), which has ἦσθα a second time instead of the Suda's ἔνθα .
