κλεινὸν, as a daughter of the great Agamemnon, the names of whose children were widely known: so Iolè, daughter of Eurytus, is “κάρτα λαμπρὰ καὶ κατ᾽ ὄνομα καὶ φύσιν” ( Tr. 379). Cp. Ph. 575ὅδ᾽ ἔσθ᾽ κλεινός σοι Φιλοκτήτης, ξένε”.—Though joined with “εἶδος, κλεινὸν” should not be taken as referring to the fame of her beauty; it is equivalent to “κλεινῆς”, by the common idiom (785).
