Big Enough for Me
O man, not Croesus' grave do you see, but that of a poor fellow; a small tomb, but sufficient for me.J.D. Denniston, The Greek Particles, 2nd ed. (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1954), p. 102 (on ἀλλὰ γάρ; quoting with a raised dot after τάφον as well as after χερνήτεω):
ἄνθρωπ᾿, οὐ Κροίσου λεύσσεις τάφον, ἀλλὰ γὰρ ἀνδρὸς
χερνήτεω· μικρὸς τύμβος, ἐμοὶ δ᾿ ἱκανός.
perhaps ἔμοιγ', with no stop between ἀλλά and ἱκανός.
