[2] Κυλλ́ηνΗς: for the numerous references to the Cyllenian cult of Hermes see Immerwahr die Kulte u. Myth. Ark. i. p. 73 f., Roscher Lex. i. 2342 f., Preller-Robert i. p. 389.

6=xviii. 6 “ἄντρῳ ναιετάουσα παλισκίῳ”, but the parallel is without effect on the reading of the older hymn. It is unnecessary to read “ἄντρου”, with Baumeister, or to alter “ναίουσα” into a verb of motion, with the older critics. “ναίειν” here governs the accusative, as often in Homer, and “ἔσω” is to be taken absolutely, “within.” For “ἔσω”=“ἔνδον”, with a verb of rest, cf. Il. 13.553, η 13, ς 96, φ” 229. Zenodotus (on Od. 7.13) denied the use, and Ebeling follows; but the exx. in Homer can hardly be explained away.
