DE NOVIS LIBRIS IUDICIA G. FRANÇOIS, Le polythéisme et l'emploi au singulier des mots Θ OEO Σ et ∆ AIM Ω N dans la littérature grecque d'Homère à Platon (Bib1. de la Fac. de Philos. et Lettres de l'Univ. de Liège, I47). Paris, Les Belles Lettres, I957. 374 p. Pr. F. 22.-. We often find (ó) 8e:6ç or (o) 3ot'Lpwv in a situation where no special god is mentioned. The author of the book under review believes that in most of these cases the singular is used in a collective sense. The arguments adduced in support of this thesis, however, are not very convincing. Let us take some examples from the Iliad: 24, 538 is preceded by 0eoi (525, 534) and followed by O£pavim- veq (547). The author maintains: ,,6sóç est employe au singulier sans qu'il puisse 6tre question d'un dieu particulier" (p. 25). Why not? The possession of offspring is a special fact naturally to be attributed to the influence of a special god. No specification is added, however, because this is thought unnecessary.
