[31] Ἆρες, Ἄρες: this verse is often quoted for the change of quantity in the penult of this name. See § 41 fβ”. Nowhere else in Homer is a word repeated immediately. Euripides and the Latin poets were rather fond of such repetition. ‘O Postume, Postume.’ — For the epithets without conj., see § 1 n, o. ‘The epithets paint three stages of war: attack, death, storming of the city.’
