Then grey-eyed Athena said:
“The gods decreed no lack of honor in this generation: such is the son Penélopê bore in you.
As per this, such here functions as a pronoun denoting the italicised. To illustrate my issue, I rewrite the main clause after the colon, firstly by reordering it into SVO sentence structure:
1. = the son Penélopê bore in you is such.
2. = the son Penélopê bore in you is no lack of honor in this generation.
3. the son Penélopê bore in you HAS no lack of honor in this generation
Yet 2 is wrong, because 'to be' cannot be followed by a noun phrase. So should the bolded instead be 'such HAS', which when rearranged into SVO, matches with 3?
