παγχρυσέων δίφρων, the golden chariot given to Pelops by Poseidon: see Pind. O. 1. 87, in n. on 505. This plur. (750), as denoting one chariot (like “ὄχεα, ἅρματα”), is not Homeric. “παγχρυσέων” (“¯¯˘¯”), the epic form, suits the metre here. Cp. Soph. Tr. 1099χρυσέων” (“¯˘¯”). Dindorf, keeping the MS. “παγχρύσων”, inserts “ἐκ” after it. The strophic test is absent in an epode.
