[213] χαῖρε: not here a salutation at meeting, but a courteous form of address or congratulation after some incident has occurred: Baumeister compares Od. 18.122 (after pledging a guest in wine, = “your health”), Od. 11.248, θ” 408, 413.

ἐΠεὶ οὔ σε κακῶν κτλ.”; cf. h. Aphr. 132οὐ μὲν γάρ κε κακοὶ τοιόνδε τέκοιεν”, and a close parallel in

οὐ σέ γέ φημι κακῶν ε<*>`ξ
ἔμμεναι οὐδὲ κακοῖσιν ἐοικότα φύμεναι αὐτόν:
οἷόν τοι μέγα εἶδος ἐπιπρέπει

(possibly an imitation of this passage; but “κακῶν ἔξ” is in Il. 14.42 and for “εἶδος ἐπιπρέπει” Gemoll compares Od. 24.252).
