ἄθλων τῶνδ̓, the labours for Eurystheus.

ὑπερτελὴς, rising clear of them: Eur. Ion1549οἴκων...ὑπερτελής” (appearing above it): Aesch. Ag.359ὑπερτελέσαι” | “μέγα δουλείας” | “γάγγαμον ἄτης.—ἔφυ” seems to be here no more than “ἐγένετο” (as in Soph. El.236, and often). Some, however, understand, ‘now that his inborn force has prevailed,’ etc.— ταρβήσασ᾽ ἔχω=“τετάρβηκα”. The periphrasis is somewhat rare when the verb is intrans.; but cp. Soph. O. T.731οὐδέ π<*> λήξαντ̓ ἔχει”.
