πεφόβημαι, a form found in Il. 10. 510（“πεφοβημένος”), and often in Attic prose; it is emphatic (=‘thoroughly scared’). πτηνῆς here suggests timorous flight; cp. Il. 5. 778“τρήρωσι πελειάσιν ἴθμαθ᾽ ὁμοῖαι.” ὄμμα πελείας, since fear or anguish is seen in the eye; cp. Tr. 527“ἀμφινείκητον ὄμμα νύμφας” (n.). O. C. 729“ὁρῶ τιν᾽ ὑμᾶς ὀμμάτων εἰληφότας ι φόβον νεωρῆ”.
