An emphatic pronoun is generally expressed, as in contrasts: σὺ μὲν κεῖνον ἐκδέχου, ἐγὼ δ' ἄπειμι do thou wait for him, but I will depart S. Ph. 123. But often in poetry and sometimes in prose the pronoun is expressed when no contrast is intended. The first of two contrasted pronouns is sometimes omitted: ἀλλά, εἰ βούλει, μέν' ἐπὶ τῷ στρατεύματι, ἐγὼ δ' ἐθέλω πορεύεσθαι but, if you prefer, remain with your division, I am willing to go X. A. 3.4.41. Cp. cross1190, cross1191.
