Hi, I'm confused by the metre a line in the Iliad set text for Greek Literature, line 264 of book 22 of the Iliad:
ἀλλὰ κακὰ φρονέουσι διαμπερὲς ἀλλήλοισιν,
I've scanned it and it appears that the fifth foot is a spondee, which is rare and unusual, so I wanted to make sure I was doing it right. Can anyone confirm this?

Yep, it's a spondee. Doesn't flow very nicely but there you go.
