    Hello!

    In this sentence: Ἐν δὲ τῇ χειρὶ δόρυ ἔχει, καὶ πρὸς τοῖς ποσὶν ἄσπιδά τε εὑρίσκομεν, καὶ πλησίον τοῦ δόρατος δράκοντα ὁρῶμεν , "τοῦ δόρατος" is complementing "δράκοντα" or "πλησίον" ?

    Thx!

    pd: omg, i wanted to say complementing!!!

    "πλησίον τοῦ δόρατος" (= near the spear) is spatial.
    "δράκοντα" is object of verb "ὁρῶμεν".
