βρίθεις, ‘art weighty,’ i.e. ‘powerful’: cp. Pind. N. 3. 40συγγενεῖ δέ τις εὐδοξίᾳ μέγα βρίθει.

μακροῦ, extensive, ‘large’: cp. 825: Tr. 1217χάριν βραχεῖαν πρὸς μακροῖς ἄλλοις διδούς.

πλούτου βάθει: cp. Tyrtaeus fr. 12. 6 “πλουτοίη δὲ Μίδεω καὶ Κινύρεω βάθιον” (so Camerarius: “μάλιον” G. M. Schmidt): Pind. O. 13. 63βαθὺν κλᾶρον” (‘a rich domain’): Suppl. 555 “βαθύπλουτον χθόνα” (referring to soil): Eur. fr. 453 “Εἰρήνα βαθύπλουτε”: Callim. Cer. 114τὸν βαθὺν οἶκον” (‘opulent’): Aelian V. H. 3. 18 “ἐν εἰρήνῃ τε διάγειν καὶ πλούτῳ βαθεῖ”. Indeed, “βαθύς” could be said (like “παχύς”) of a rich man: Xen. Oec. 11. 10βαθεῖς τε καὶ ἐρρωμένους ἄνδρας”, ‘men of substance and power.’—The feeble v.l. βάρει (cr. n.) was prompted by “βρίθεις”.
