Besides “ὅ, ἥ, τό”, Homeric demonstratives are ὅδε (Latin hīc), οὗτος (iste), and κεῖνος (ille), which is commoner than “ἐκεῖνος”. E. g. A 234, “ναὶ μὰ τόδε σκῆπτρον”, ‘verily, by this scepter,’ that I hold (hōc scēptrum). A 573, “λοίγια ἔργα τάδ᾽ ἔσσεται”, ‘sorry doings these here [where I am] will be’; ‘there will be sorry doings here.’ For “κεῖνοι” (= illī) see A 266.
