[274] οἳ μέν, Diomedes and his charioteer, Sthenelus.

[275] τὼ δέ, Aeneas and Pandarus. The combination of dual subject, dual participle, and plural verb is not inconsistent with epic diction.

[276] τόν, Diomedes, as shown by “Τυδέος υἱέ” (l. 277).

[278] ὀιστός, in apposition to “βέλος”. The reference is to ll. 95-106 of this Book, where it is told how Pandarus shot an arrow at Diomedes, slightly wounding his shoulder: “τὸν δ᾽ οὐ βέλος ὠκὺ δάμασσεν
” (l. 106).

[279] νῦν αὖτ᾽ε), ‘once more now.’
