ὄλβιος, ὃν “κ.τ.λ.” The respect in which he is ‘happy’ is defined by the following clause, according to a frequent poetical idiom. Hes. Th. 954“ὄλβιος, ὃς μέγα ἔργον ἐν ἀθανάτοισιν ἀνύσσας” | “ναίει ἀπήμαντος”. Hom. Od. 11. 450“ὄλβιος: ἦ γὰρ τόν γε πατὴρ φίλος ὄψεται ἐλθών”. And so with other words: Hom. Od. 1. 8“νήπιοι, οἳ κατὰ βοῦς Ὑπερίονος ἠελίοιο” | “ησθιον”: ib. 3. 161 “σχέτλιος, ὅς ῤ̔ ἔριν ὦρσε κ.τ.λ.” For the simple “ὅς”, instead of “ὅς γε” or “ὅστις”, with causal force, cp. below, 188, 261, 959; O.T. 817.
