Sample text

There is no need here for courtesies. 31 This is a matter of urgency: hence the directness of Zeus’ instructions to her. Note Zeus’ progression from ‘announcing’ to ‘ordering’: announce ( γγε λαι, ); don’t be a false messenger (μηδ ψευδ γγελος ε ναι, ); order ( νωχ ι, ). Zeus, through Iris, instructs Poseidon to quit the fighting and go back either to the company of the gods or into the bright sea. Zeus has referred to his brother at  as ‘lord Poseidon’ (Ποσειδ ωνι νακτι): his intentions to this point might be read as polite.

33 First, she asks whether that was indeed the reply he would like her to take back to Zeus and, second, she gently slips in the proposal that he might soften his approach a little ( τι μεταστρ ψεις; or will you change a little? ). 34 32 Poseidon has, however, made such a concession earlier. – he had protested to Hera, when she had rebuked him, at –, for not playing a more active role in the defence of the Achaians that Zeus was the greater god. But it is clear that the question of pre-eminence always rankles with him.
