[284] ἴδοιμι κατελθόντα: pieturesque for “κατέλθοι”, as “φαίην ἐκλελαθέσθαι” for “ἐκλελάθοιτο”. cf. 330, 4.98 f. A still more prosaic form would be, “εἰ ἐκεῖνος ἀποθάνοι”. The aor. partic. here differs from the pres. partie. only as the aor. inf. would from the pres. infinitive. cf. “εἰπόντος 281.— Ἄιδος”: the gen. is to be const. not with the adv. “εἴσω”, but with the implied “δόμον”. On “ἐν πατρός” 47.
