πάντ᾽ ἀΐων: cp. 42. The “α” of “ἀΐω” short, as in 240 and Ph. 1410: whereas it is long in 181, 304, Ai. 1263. Διὸς Ὅρκος, as the servant of Zeus.
. This personified Horkis is a deity who witnesses an oath, and punishes perjury (Hes. Theog. 231). He is the son of Eris, because strife gives birth to treaties; he is attended at his birth by the Erinyes, because they avenge broken faith. And he is the servant of Zeus, because Ζεὺς Ὅρκιος is the supreme guardian of good-faith — represented in the βουλευτήριον at Olympia by a Zeus with lightnings in both hands, —the most terrible, Pausanias says, that he knew: “πάντων ὁπόσα ἀγάλματα Διὸς μάλιστα ἐς ἔκπληξιν ἀδίκων ἀνδρῶν” (5. 24. 9)
