ὑλακτεῖ, the word used of a dog's bark, here describes a yell of rage, as in Eur. Alc. 760ἄμουσ᾽ ὑλακτῶν” is said of the drunken Heracles.

σὺν is here an adv. (and not, as in 746, a case of tmesis): cp. Ai. 1288ὅδ᾽ ἦν πράσσων ταῦτα, σὺν δ᾽ ἐγὼ παρών.

πέλας is combined with “παρών” as in Ai. 83: so with “παρέστατε”, ib. 1183: and “παραστατήσειν”, O. T. 400.παρών implies support and aid; cp. Ph. 373, Ph. 1405.

301 The adv. πάντα often thus strengthens an adj., as Ai. 911 πάντα κωφός, πάντ᾽ ἄϊδρις.

ἄναλκις: Od. 3. 310ἀνάλκιδος Αἰγίσθοιο”: Aesch. Ag. 1224λέοντ᾽ ἄναλκιν.

πᾶσα βλάβη, equiv. in sense to “ πᾶς βλάβη ὤν”: see on Ph. 622, where this phrase is applied to Odysseus: and cp. ib. 927 “ πῦρ σὺ καὶ πᾶν δεῖμα”.
