μέν . . . δέ is used in successive clauses which contain either the same word (anaphora) or a synonymous word; as ἐγὼ δὲ σύνειμι μὲν θεοῖς, σύνειμι δὲ ἀνθρώποις τοῖς ἀγαθοῖς quoted in 1159, ἦλθε μὲν καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς Ἐρυθραία_ς ἀγγελία_, ἀφι_κνεῖτο δὲ καὶ πανταχόθεν news came from the district of Erythrae itself and arrived also from all quarters T. 3.33. But μέν is sometimes omitted, as στήσω σ' ἄγων, στήσω δ' ἐμαυτόν I will bring thee and stablish thee, and I will stablish myself S. O. C. 1342.
