[37] Πάντας ἰδόντας: elsewhere in the hymn hiatus occurs before “ἰδεῖν” (8, 42, 48, 52). For the variation, within a few lines, cf. Od. 21.122 τάφος δ᾽ ἕλε πάντας ἰδόντας” with 112 “ὄφρα ἴδωμεν”. On the observance and neglect of “ϝ” in “ἰδεῖν” see H. G. § 390. The less familiar “τάφος” is supported by “φ”, and is to be preferred to “φόβος” read by Gemoll.
