ψιθύρους: Pind. P. 2. 75“οἷα ψιθύρων παλάμαις” (the arts of slanderers) “ἕπετ᾽ αἰεὶ βροτῶν”. (Ep. Rom. i. 30 “ψιθυριστάς, καταλάλους”.) πᾶσιν Ὀδυσσείς. L has “πάντων ὀδυσσεύς”, and it is possible that (as Nauck thinks) the poet wrote “πάντων Ὀδυσεύς”. (Euripides has that Homeric form in anapaests, Hec. 143“ἥξει δ᾽ Ὀδυσεὺς ὅσον οὐκ ἤδη”.) But it seems improbable, seeing that the short form occurs nowhere else in Sophocles, though he uses the name some twenty-five times. On the other hand, a transcriber might easily have written the gen. “πάντων” after “ὦτα”, by mistake for the less usual dative.
