μεμαθηκώς: “after finishing his course.”—Ὅμηρος κτλ.: the passage is in Γ 169, 170, where Priam says of Agamemnon καλὸν δ᾽ οὕτω ἐγὼν οὔπω ἴδον ὀφθαλμοῖσιν | οὐδ̓ οὕτω γεραρόν: βασιλῆι γὰρ ἀνδρὶ ἔοικεν.

γεραρόν: stately.

οὔτε στρατηγός: before these words οὔτε κιθαριστής might be expected; prob. omitted as inappropriate to οὐδ᾽ ἐὰν αἱρεθῃ.
