τῶν … μεγάλων ψυχῶν, those “διοτρεφεῖς βασιλεῖς” like Ajax, who, in the true Homeric spirit, are conceived as “μεγάθυμοι, μεγαλόψυχοι” above common men. ἱεὶς with gen., like other verbs of ‘aiming at’: Ant. 1034“τοξεύετ᾽ ἀνδρὸς τοῦδε”: Eur. Cycl. 51“ῥίψω πέτρον σου.” ἁμάρτοις (cr. n.), the original reading in L, seems better, as being simpler and clearer, than ἁμάρτοι, though “τις” could, of course, be easily supplied from the next clause. κατὰ δ᾽ ἄν τις ἐμοῦ: for the separation of “κατὰ” from its case, cp. 969.
