πικροὺς, to our cost: El. 470πικρὰν δοκῶ με πεῖραν τήνδε τολμήσειν ἔτι” (n.).

ἔοιγμεν, for “ἐοίκαμεν”, occurs also in Eur. Heracl. 681, Eur. Cycl. 99. Eur. Itis not found in the Homeric poems, but may be compared with “ἐπέπιθμεν” ( Il. 2. 341), “εἰλήλουθμεν” ( Il. 9. 49), and “ἄνωγμεν” (Hom. hymn. Apoll. Pyth. 350).

ὅπλων ἀγῶνας: the objective gen. here denotes the prize: cp. 936ὅπλων ἔκειτ᾽ ἀγὼν πέρι.— κηρῦξαι”, instead of the usual “θεῖναι”: cp. El. 690ὅσων γὰρ εἰσεκήρυξαν βραβῆς κ.τ.λ.

τότε: 650 n.
