Movable Nu at the End of a Verse in the Homeric Hymn to Demeter
Languages of publication
In some editions of the Homeric Hymn to Demeter, the movable nu is added at the end of a verse when the next verse begins with a vowel and it is omitted when the next verse begins with a consonant. However, at verse 148 in almost all of the editions, the nu is added, even though the next verse (149) begins with a consonant: 148-149 'ferteroi eisin. | tauta de'. The author shows that there is no reason for accepting 'eisin' here in the editions.
