[347] cf. v. 356, “Η 250, Ρ 517, Υ 274. — πάντος᾿ ἐίσην”: a standing formula, at the close of the verse; alike on every side. Strictly used of the smaller circular shields (“ἀσπίδας εὐκύκλους Ε” 453), in distinction from the large oval “σάκος”. But the shield of Paris is called “σάκος” v. 335, and “ἀσπίς”, v. 356; and thus also the shield of Achilles is “ἀσπίς, Σ” 458, and “σάκος Σ” 478.

348-350 = 17.44-46.

348 = 7.259.

οὐδέ: but not.

ἔρρηξεν: broke through the shield.

χαλκός: the bronze point of the lance, cf. “χαλκῷ” below.

οἷ: refers to “χαλκός”.
