[445] ὦνον ὁδαίων ‘the buying (lit. the price) of your freight’: “ὁδαῖα”= ‘things belonging to the voyage’ (“ὁδός”), hence cargo taken in on the way, return cargo: see on 8. 163.

ὦνος always means ‘price paid’; here ‘hurry on with the price’ must be a (slightly colloquial) way of saying ‘make haste with your bargaining.’
