ἵλεῳ. While “ἱλαρός” (“ι^”) properly refers to aspect (‘beaming,’ ‘cheerful,’ as opp. to “σκυθρωπός”), “ἵλεως” denotes a placid or gracious mood of the mind: cp. Ephippus (a poet of the Middle Comedy), “Ἐμπολή” fr. 1 “ἐποίησέ θ᾽ ἱλαρόν, εὐθέως δ᾽ ἀφεῖλε πᾶν” | “αὐτοῦ τὸ λυποῦν, κἀπέδειξεν ἵλεων” (where Meineke rashly changes “θ᾽ ἱλαρόν” to “θαλερόν”).
