τὰν ἀμφινεικῆ: cp. 527: Aesch. Ag.686τὰν δορίγαμβρον ἀμφινεικῆ θ᾽ Ἑλέναν”. Not, ‘with two suitors’ (Paley).— ἀεί belonged, in the poet's thought, to τρύχεσθαι, but is cut off from it by the adversative form in which the sentence is worked out (“οὔποτ᾽ εὐνάζειν..., ἀλλ̓”, instead of “οὔποτ᾽ εὐνάζουσαν”). It could not well be taken with “ποθουμένᾳ”: still less with “πυνθάνομαι”.
