ἤτοι ( τοι): verily, to be sure, particle of asseveration (see ), and antithesis, not always to be translated; in correlation ἤτοι.. αὐτάρ differs from μὲν.. δέ only in so far as disyllabic and initial words must necessarily have more weight than monosyllabic and postpositive ones. As αὐτάρ, q. v., often correlates to μέν, so ἤτοι may be followed by δέ, Il. 1.68, and often. Freq. ἀλλ᾽ ἤτοι, also ἤτοι μέν, Il. 1.140, 211, Il. 16.451.
