[516] καλὰ καὶ ὕψι βιβάς=202.

ῥ́ησσοντες, “beating time,” the verb being perhaps connected with “ἀ-ράσσ-ω”, not with “ῥη<*>γνυμι”. Cf. Il. 18.571 τοὶ δὲ ῥήσσοντες ἁμαρτῇ . . . ἕποντο” (where see Leaf), and is borrowed by Apollonius (Il. 1.539) who uses it with an object, “πέδον ῥήσσωσι πόδεσσιν”. On the derivation see Siebourg in Rhein. Mus. 57. 2 (1902), who compares “ῥάσσω”.
