αἰὼν, fortune in life; Ph.179.εἰς δόμους τε κἀκ δόμων: this order of words is the most forcible: no sooner did he regain his home, than he had to leave it again. The reversed order (which Brunck prefers) would give greater prominence to his moments of rest.

τῳ: Eurystheus (1049), whose name she shrinks from uttering.
