ἄσιτος. Od. 4. 788(Penelope in her anxiety for Telemachus) “κεῖτ᾽ ἄρ᾽ ἄσιτος ἄπαστος ἐδητύος ἠδὲ ποτῆτος”. σιδηροκμῆσιν: as the dead are “οἱ καμόντες, οἱ κεκμηκότες”, so “σιδηροκμής” is one who has died by the sword: cp. Aesch. Cho. 365“δουρικμῆτι λαῷ”: ib. 889 “ἀνδροκμῆτα πέλεκυν” (an axe by which men die).
