πρῶτον μ<*> … ἀρετῇ τε. The “μέν” here is not corr<*>ative to “ἃ δ̓” in 1431: it is followed by “τε”: cp. 1058 n. So in 1426 ff., “Πάρ<*> μέν...πέρσεις τε”. Possibly τε ought to <*> “δέ” in one of the two places, or in both: but, in each case, the “τε” may be a trace of the somewhat careless writing which appears in this speech. ἐκκρ<*>εὶς, as Menelaus was for the “μονομαλ<*>” with Paris ( Il. 3), and Ajax for that with Hector ( Il. 7).
