πόροι ἁλίρροθοι: probably ‘paths or straits of the sounding sea,’ as in Aesch. Pers. 367“ἔκπλους φυλάσσειν καὶ πόρους ἁλιρρόθους”: meaning here the waters of the Hellespont. His thought passes from those waters to the πάραλα ἄντρα beside them, and thence to the neighbouring woodlands. For the form of the phrase, cp. Soph. O. C. 1062“ῥιμφαρμάτοις...ἁμίλλαις”.—The other version, ‘paths by the sounding sea,’ is possible, but less probable.
