κύνας βοτῆρας: schol. “τοὺς ποιμενικοὺς κύνας: οὐ γὰρ ἀναιρεῖ κατὰ τὴν σκηνὴν ἄνθρωπον.

εὔερον is a certain emendation of εύκερων, which was doubtless due to a reminiscence of v. 64. (Bellermann, who retains “εὔκερων”, refers it to the horns of the rams; while Prof. Campbell, who also keeps it, says, ‘The word describes all the cattle, small and great, excepting the bulls, which have been mentioned separately.’) The form “εὔερος” (Attic for “εὔειρος”). from “εἶρος”, ‘wool,’ occurs in Tr. 675(“οἰὸς εὐέρου”) and is proved by metre in Ar. Av. 121.The mention of the shepherd's dogs is naturally followed by that of the sheep.
