Διὸςθεὰ: cp. 401.

γοργῶπις, as in fr. 760. 2 the poet calls her “τὴν Διὸς γοργῶπιν Ἐργάνην”. Cp. Il. 1. 199, where Athena appears to Achilles: “αὐτίκα δ᾽ ἔγνω Παλλάδ᾽ Ἀθηναίην: δεινὼ δέ οἱ ὄσσε φάανθεν.

ἀδάματος is the form required by metre in O. T. 205, O. T. 1315, and O. C. 1572; though in all three passages L gives the epic form “ἀδάμαστος”.
