[11] τοῦτό τι, lit. ‘this thing in a sort of way.’ This is no hyperbaton for “τοῦτο κάλλιστόν τι φαίνεται εἶναι”, but a qualification of the general tone of the assertion by the addition of “τι”, as in such combinations as “σχεδόν τι, πάνυ τι”. Cp. Il.21. 101τόφρα τί μοι πεφιδέσθαι ἐνὶ φρεσὶ φίλτερον ἦεν

Τρώων”, Il.9. 197 τι μάλα χρεώ”. Nitzsch compares Hdt.4. 52οὕτω δή τι ἐοῦσα πικρή”.
