καθεῖλενοἰκήτορας (proleptic), brought them low, so that they should be dwellers, etc. After Ἅιδου, θανασίμους is redundant; but cp. Tr. 1161ἀλλ᾽ ὅστις Ἅιδου φθίμενος οἰκήτωρ πέλοι”: though ib. 282 we have simply, “Ἅιδου πάντες εἴσ᾽ οἰκήτορες”. For “θανάσιμος” said of the dead, cp. O.T. 959, Ph. 819.
