πότερον (πότερα) was originally the neuter of πότερος which of the two? placed in front of a double question and later made a part of the first question. Thus, ἐρωτῶ πότερον φιλεῖ ἢ μι_σεῖ σε I ask which of the two (is true): does he love or does he hate you? Cp. Τυ_δεΐδην δ' οὐκ ἂν γνοίης ποτέροισι μετείη, ἠὲ μετὰ Τρώεσσιν ὁμι_λέοι ἦ μετ' Ἀχαιοῖς you could not tell on which side Tydides was, whether he consorted with Trojans or with Achaeans E 85, τίνες κατῆρξαν, πότερον Ἕλληνες, μάχης, ἢ παῖς ἐμός; who began the battle—was it the Greeks or my son? A. Pers. 351, cp. X. C. 1.3.2.
