θέρους: so Verg. Aen. 3. 8, vix prima inceperat aestas. The general tradition was that Troy fell about the end of May (late in the Attic month Thargelion): see Camill. 19 (where Ephorus and other writers are quoted for the statement), and Clemens Strom. 1. 21, p. 139 (where “Διονύσιος Ἀργεῖος” is cited: cp. Müller Frag. Hist. III. p. 26). πᾶσαν, adverbial: cp. 386.

δίδωσ᾽ἑαυτόν, offers himself, κτείνειν, (for us) to slay: cp. 618: Nub. 440 “τουτὶ τό γ᾽ ἐμὸν σῶμ᾽ αὐτοῖσιν” | “παρέχω τύπτειν”.
