τᾶν μακραιώνων here not goddesses （ Aesch. Seven 524 “δαροβίοισι θεοῖσιν”）, but the Nymphs, who, though not immortal, live beyond the human span; HH 4.260 “αἵ ῥ᾽ οὔτε θνητοῖς οὔτ᾽ ἀθανάτοισιν ἕπονται: ι δηρὸν μὲν ζώουσι καὶ ἄμβροτον εἶδαρ ἔδουσιν.” They consort with Pan, “ὅς τ᾽ ἀνὰ πίση ι δενδρήεντ᾽ ἄμυδις φοιτᾷ χοροήθεσι Νύμφαις,” HH 19.2.
