[288] διπλοῦς πομπούς he had sent two successive messages—one messenger with each. πομπός = one who is sent to escort(πέμπειν) or fetch a person (Soph. OC 70). The words could mean (as Ellendt takes them) “two sets of messengers”: but the other view is simpler, and consists equally well with οἵδε in 297.
