ἄελπτον: Archil. fr. 76 “χρημάτων ἄελπτον οὐδέν ἐστιν οὐδ᾽ ἀπώμοτον”. Cp. Soph. Ant. 388. ἁλίσκεται, absol., ‘is captured,’ ‘is proved weak’: cp. 1267.— δεινὸς: cp. Tr. 476“ὁ δεινὸς ἵμερος”: El. 770“δεινὸν τὸ τίκτειν ἐστίν.” περισκελεῖς: Ant. 475“σίδηρον ὀπτὸν ἐκ πυρὸς περισκελῆ” (n.). Thus the associations of the word lead naturally to his next thought.
