αὖθις answers to “τὸν μέν” (1199), as in 167 “τοῦτ᾽ αὖθις” to “τοῦτο μέν”. For “αὖθις” as=‘afterwards,’ cp. Ai. 1283, Tr. 270. λιθόστρωτον, ‘with floor of stone,’ here suggests, ‘affording no couch but one of stone,’ in contrast with a real “νυμφεῖον”, which contains a “λέχος εὔστρωτον... ι χλαίνῃσιν μαλακῇς ἐστρωμένον” (Hom. hymn. Ven. 157 f.). κόρης νυμφεῖον-Ἅιδου, the maiden's death-bower: cp. 795 n., 929.
