ὑπείκει. Cp. Babrius fab. 36: an oak, torn up by the roots, is being swept down by a boiling torrent, and asks the reeds how they have managed to escape; when a reed (“κάλαμος”) answers;—“σὺ μὲν μαχομένη ταῖς πνοαῖς ἐνικήθης, ι ἡμεῖς δὲ καμπτόμεσθα μαλθακῇ γνώμῃ, ι κἂν βαιὸν ἡμῶν ἄνεμος ἄκρα κινήσῃ.” αὐτόπρεμνα = αὐτόρριζα, πρόρριζα; Il. 9.541 “χαμαὶ βάλε δένδρεα μακρὰ ι αὐτῇσιν ῥίζῃσι”.
