ἀγλαΐας, the external splendour of their life (cp. 268 f., 280); as in Od. 17. 310 it is said of dogs whose value consists only in their beauty, “ἀγλαΐης δ᾽ ἕνεκεν κομέουσιν ἄνακτες” (‘for ornament’). The word is especially fitting here, as suggesting triumph, for “Ἀγλαΐα” was especially the Grace of victory; cp. Pind. O. 14. 13(with Gildersleeve's note): and Pind. O. 13. 14“νικαφόρον ἀγλαΐαν.” ἀποναίατο: for the Ionic form, cp. O.T. 1274 n.
