ὅσοι πάρεσμεν. The plural includes those who had accompanied Heracles from Euboea: cp. 1194ξὺν οἷς χρῄζεις φίλων”. We are not obliged to suppose that any son besides Hyllus was at home; though verses 54 f. implied that. Nauck rejects v. 1156 because (1) Hyllus could not say “ὅσοι”, and (2) Heracles has not yet asked him to do anything.

ἐξυπηρετήσομεν: cp. O. T.217 n.
