823. The distinction between the second and third of these classes is less clearly marked than that between the first and the two others: thus in ἥδεται τιμώμενος, he delights in being honoured, the participle is generally classed as supplementary (881), although it expresses cause (838). Even an attributive participle may also be circumstantial; as μὴ δαρεὶς ἄνθρωπος, the unflogged man (824), involves a condition. The three classes are, nevertheless, sufficiently distinct for convenience, though the lines (like many others in syntax) must not be drawn so strictly as to defeat their object.
