πτερωτὸς: Verg. Aen. 5. 319et ventis et fulminis ocior alis.

ἄξεται: the fut. midd. here merely=“ἄξει”, for “"cause me to be led"” would be strained. In Od. 21.322οὔ τί σε τόνδ᾽ ἄξεσθαι” “ὀϊόμεθ᾽” (“"wed thee"”), the midd. has its proper special force: cp. ib. 214. In Eur. Hipp. 625 it is doubtful. In Aesch. Ag. 1632 etc. it is passive.
