760. In Homer, the pronominal adjectives τοῖος, τοιόσδε, τοιοῦτος, τόσος, τηλίκος, and ποῖος, without a relative, sometimes take an infinitive in the same way (759); as ἡμεῖς δ᾽ οὔ νύ τι τοῖοι ἀμυνέμεν, but we are not able to keep it off, Od. ii. 60; ποῖοι κ᾽ εἶτ᾽ Ὀδυσσῆι ἀμυνέμεν; Od. xxi. 195.See also Il. vi. 463; Od. iii. 205, Od. vii. 309, Od. xvii. 20.
