πᾶς τις. The deed was found out at dawn. Common rumour at once pointed to Ajax. Then the “ὀπτήρ” (29) informed Odysseus, who reached the tent of Ajax very soon after the latter's return; as is shown by 296—304 compared with 91—113.

νέμει: cp. Galen 7. 582 (Kühn) “οὐκ ἴσην ἅπασι νέμει τὴν αἰτίαν”.—The corrupt τρέπει may have come from the gloss on “ἐκείνῳ..νέμει” which occurs in some of the later MSS., “εἰς αὐτὸν τρέπει”. This is one of the few instances (like Ant. 386 and 831) where a true reading, lost in L, has been preserved in other MSS. Cp. crit. notes on 44, Ant. 61.
