[486] ἐξέταμε (“ἐκτέμνω”): fells. Gnomic.

ἴτυν: felloe. The soft wood of the poplar could easily be bent and fashioned. In itself, it would not seem well adapted to the service here indicated, but perhaps it was sufficiently strengthened by the bronze ‘tire’ (“ἐπίσσωτρα Ε” 725). — ‘Acc. of effect’ with “κάμψῃ”. G. 159 N. 3; H. 714.

κάμψῃ: Subjv., although after “ἔταμε”, since the gnomic aor. is grammatically equiv. to a present. cf. 443, 5.524.
