I believe the original passage says that he forced his ius primae noctis. Then in the first place their "jan olin" should be upset. If so, then:
"mama sewi Aruru" is a good idea, thank you. Aruru was someway (licentia poetica?) responsible for "his shape", M.G.

perhaps you dont need pi after (quasi)prepositions, because they do regroupping without pi. with pi "jan sama" means "brother of Gilgamesh". ironically, later they became brothers, but this is another storyjan sama pi jan Kikamesi

On 'tawa musi pi toki sitelen kepeken toki pona' blog I found the following comment from a readerjanKipo wrote:'ona li toki tawa jan mama Alulu e ni' the grammar puts prepositional phrases modifying the whole after the object 'e ni tawa mama Alulu' but I am not sure how firm that is (few counterexamples, all called into question, and some defended by trying to find a way to introduce prep phrases that modify just noun phrases -- not applicable here)
Now all occurences of the phrase are changed to ... li toki e ni tawa ...toki tawa [sina ken weka e 'jan'] ona e ni:
pona la 'toki e ni tawa ona'

Something like "people of Uruk could live in peace/quietly/without all ike (mentioned above)".janKipo wrote:'tan ni la jan pi ma tomo Uluku li ken lon pi ike ala".' Not sure what the end means.
I messed up verb and noun here ("can live..." and *"can have a life...").janKipo wrote:'lon' is a preposition functioning as a verb here (if I am reading this right), so what follows it is the object of the preposition, not the direct object of the verb, so automatically grouped as a single item and not needing 'pi': "can be in a not bad place"? Of course, 'lon ike ala' can also mean "not be in a bad place' but the difference hardly seems to matter here (and if we go chasing after that ambiguity, the whole language gets a couple of orders of magnitude more complex). Or maybe you mean. "can exist not badly" which would use 'pi' (if allowed). All these call for a less awkward formulation
It's a pity.janKipo wrote:for which I have no suggestions.
Right. Longer context to make sure that "ona" is unambigous:jan-ante wrote:just say simply, he was a son of meli sewi Ninsun and jan lawa Lugalbanda
I thought it should be here, because of a rule of grouping:jan-ante wrote:jan pi ma tomo Uluku li ken lon pi ike alajan sama pi jan Kikamesi
