στρατὸς here=“λεὼς” ( Tr. 795 n.).

δίφρων: the plur., as in 510: cp. 727ὄχοις”. In the narrower sense, “δίφρος” is the platform of the car, usu. made of interlaced thongs (“ἱμάντες”), stretched on a framework of wood or iron ( Il. 5. 727).

ἀνωλόλυξε, here of grief, as “ὀλόλυξαν” in Ap. Rh. 3. 1218: elsewhere, almost always a triumphant cry, esp. of women ( Tr. 205).

οἰ̔̂οἷα: Ai. 923οἷος ὢν οἵως ἔχεις”.
