    «ἴθι δή, Ἄργε, δίωκε».

    what means the (ithi dé) in the sentence?
    How can it be translated? And what it's its function in the sentence?

    It's like "go on" ("go on, Arge, chase (it)"). Like age(dum) with commands in Latin, I think.

    thanks, but is it a conjunction?

    ἴθι is an imperative. δή is a particle.
