I am desperately trying to conquer the diagramming of this sentence: "Homer is believed to have been from modern-day Turkey." I'm fairly certain "is believed" is a helping verb/verb combination, but what is "to have been"? Is it a verb phrase? It can't be a prepositional phrase, right? Where does it fit in a diagram? Any help would be appreciated.
