Father to Daughter

Homer, Odyssey 6.68 (Alcinous to Nausicaa; tr. A.T. Murray, rev. George E. Dimock):
Neither the mules do I begrudge you, my child, nor anything else.

οὔτε τοι ἡμιόνων φθονέω, τέκος, οὔτε τευ ἄλλου.
There is no note on this line in J.B. Hainsworth's commentary, but none is needed. Any father with a daughter will immediately understand.
