εἰς Ἅιδου Blind on earth, Oed. will be blind in the nether world. Cp. Hom. Od. 12.266 “καί μοι ἔπος ἔμπεσε θυμῷ ι μάντηος ἀλαοῦ Θηβαίου Τειρεσίαο,” where Odysseus is thinking of the blind Teiresias as he had found him in Hades. Cp. Hom. Od. 11.91, where ἔγνω need not imply that the poet of the νέκυια conceived Teiresias as having sight. So Achilles in Hades is still swift-footed （Hom. Od. 11.546）.
