1105 , , τό AS A RELATIVE

The demonstrative ὁ, ἡ, τό is used as a relative pronoun in Homer only when the antecedent is definite (cp. that): τεύχεα δ' ἐξενάριξε, τά οἱ πόρε χάλκεος Ἄρης he stripped off the arms that brazen Ares had given him H 146. The tragic poets use only the forms in τ-, and chiefly to avoid hiatus or to produce position: κτείνουσα τοὺς οὐ χρὴ κτανεῖν slaying those whom it is not right to slay E. And. 810. (ὅ ὅς E. Hipp. 525.) On the use in Herodotus, see cross338 D. 3.
