Main Question or Discussion Point

During my reading I met with,

-1)μν = Λνμ ≡ ημρΛρσησν.

Is it correct to say that η raises and lowers the indices of Λ giving Λμν, which, in turn, will give (Λ-1)μν = Λμν?

Thanks for any help.

The indices are not balanced. Check again the exact positioning.

Thanks Dextercioby for your help.
Does that mean that there is a misprint in what I read and the μ and the ν of the η must be exchanged?
