τύπωμα, anything formed or moulded; Soph. Ph. 162μορφῆς τύπωμα”, ‘the outline of his form.’ The vague word is here defined by χαλκόπλευρον: which may be a reminiscence of the phrase used by Aesch. ( Aesch. Ch. 686) in the same context, “λέβητος χαλκέου πλευρώματα”. The cinerary urn is described below as “βραχὺς χαλκὸς” (757), “τεῦχος” (1114), “ἄγγος” (1118), “λέβης” (1401). Cp. fr. 348 “χαλκηλάτους λέβητας”.

ἠρμένοι, pass.,=“ἠρμένον ἔχοντες” (schol.). Cp. Aeschin. or. 3 § 164 “ἐπιστολὰς ἃς ἐξηρτημένος ἐκ τῶν δακτύλων περιῄεις” (as Hor. Sat. 1. 6. 74suspensi loculos” ): Xen. Anab. 7. 4. 16ἐσπασμένοι τὰ ξίφη”: id. Cyr. 6. 3. 24προβεβλημένοι...τοὺς θωρακοφόρους” : Plut. Phoc. 10πώγωνα...καθειμένος”. See also Soph. Tr. 157 n.

Others take “ἠρμένοι” as middle. This use of “ἦρμαι” is not unknown to later Greek; e.g. Strabo 3. p. 150 has “νίκην ἠρμένοι”=“ἀράμενοι”. But there is no example of it in the classical period.
