δορυσσοήτων, ‘spear-hurling,’ here=‘martial.’ “δορυσσόης” occurs nowhere else, but is related to “δορυσσόος” as “γυμνής” to “γυμνός, κουρῆτες” to “κοῦροι”, and it would certainly be rash to deny that metrical convenience could have suggested such a by-form. Blaydes and Wecklein change it to δορυσσόων, reading “ἔδειξ̓” (instead of “ἔδειξεν”) in 1195. Nauck gives δορυσσῶν (further changing “ἄπαυστον” to “ἀπαύσταν”), and in 1196 omits the word “κοινόν”. (Cp. O.C. 1313 “δορυσσοῦς Ἀμφιάρεως”.)
