[257] Editors commonly punctuate with a colon at “θήσω”, assuming an aposiopesis or change of construction after 260. The punctuation in the text seems to avoid all difficulty. Peppmüller places a colon at “θήσω”, but reads “ἄλλ̓” for “ἀλλ̓”, comparing the common “ἄλλο δέ τοι ἐρέω σὺ δ᾽ ἐνὶ φρεσί κτλ.” But “ἄλλο” here is scarcely appropriate.

ἔπος τι κτλ.”=Il. 19.121.
