Sometimes , , τό, is used like the Attic article. E. g. A 70, “τά τ᾽ ἐόντα”, ‘the present.’ A 6, “τὰ πρῶτα” (cf. Xen. Anab. I, 10, 10, “τὸ πρῶτον”). 3.109, “ γέρων” shows the ‘generic’ use of the word; so too I 320, “ τ᾽ ἀεργὸς ἀνήρ”.

(a) Suspiciously like the Attic use are A 33, “ γέρων”, A 35, “ γεραιός”, etc.

(b) Observe that in this use the forms that are proclitic in Attic are left unaccented in this text.
