Iliad 7.293ff.

  • Howard Jacobson (a1)
Abstract

Wordplay involving names is routine in Homer. Less common, but not rare, is wordplay that does not have anything to do with names. Thus, at Iliad 1.290f. there is a play on ; at 24.611 an implicit play on (people)/ (stone); at Odyssey 12.45–46 a possible play on .
