[123] χρυσάορα: an epithet of Apollo in 395 (where see note), Il. 5.509, Ο” 256, Hes. Op.771, fr. 227, Pind. Pyth.v. 104, Apoll. Arg. 3.1282; of Demeter, h. Dem. 4. In Homer and h. Dem. the nom. would be “χρυσάορος”, according to the MSS.; so “χρυσαόρου” 395. Leaf on Il. 5.509 argues that forms from “χρυσάωρ” should everywhere be restored; the hiatus in Il. 15.256 produced “χρυσάορον” for “χρυσάορα”.

θ́ησατο: only here in a causal sense, of the mother. In Homer and h. Dem. 236 the verb is used of the child. The prose form “θηλάζω” has a similar double use.
