So is "hemiteleia" an actual term of ancient Greek rhetoric, or did Howard coin it himself?

I suspect that it is a modern construction, like "television" which is cobbled together from both Greek and Latin. I can't imagine the ancient Greeks or the Romans foresaw Logie Baird's invention.

There is a whole range of supermarket items offered under the name of "Tesco's Finest".
