ἡνί-οχος (ἡνία, ἔχω): holding the reins, θεράπων, Il. 5.580; charioteer. The charioteer usually stood at the left of the πρόμαχος. (Among the Assyrians, as shown by the cut, the warrior, armed with a bow, had also a second attendant as shield-bearer with himself on the chariot. The Egyptian monuments represent only one warrior or triumphing king upon the war-chariot.)
