μανίᾳ γὰρ: notice the “γάρ” in two successive clauses ( El. 180 n.): here it prefaces the statement ( O. T. 277 n.).— ἡμὶν, ethic dat.: El. 272.

νύκτερος, adverbial: cp. 930πάννυχα καὶ φαέθοντ᾽ ἀνεστέναζες”. Il. 1. 497ἠερίη δ᾽ ἀνέβη”. The word is irregularly placed, as if the speaker had meant to designate Ajax by “ κλεινὸς” only, and had then added “Αἴας”: for similar irregularities, cp. El. 693 f., n.

ἀπελωβήθη, a somewhat rare pass. aor.: Ph. 330ἐξελωβήθην”: Plat. Gorg. 473 Cλώβας..λωβηθείς”.
