Accent of prepositions or adverbs

1 Wherever prepositions retain their primitive adverbial force they are accented; and dissyllabic prepositions that have the force of adverbs are accented on the penult. E. g. A 142, “ἔν, ἔς”. A 39, “ἔπι”. A 258, “πέρι”.

1 Following Cauer's Iliad, Praefatio, pp. xxxix-xliv.
