[480] ἄναχθ᾽=“ἄνακτα”.

[481] ὡς εἴ τε, ‘like as.’

[482] πολλοῖσιν ἐπὶ κτεάτεσσιν, ‘guardian of his great possessions’: “ὧν ... συνήγαγεν ... φύλακα” (scholium). On this use of “ἐπί” cf. Z 424, 18.529.

[485] καί σε τοσοῦτον ἔθηκα, ‘and I made you what you are.’

488, 489. ‘Until I seated you on my knees and fed you with dainty food, carving for you first, and pressing the wine to [your lips].’

ὄψου is partitive genitive.—The dainty food may have been such as Astyanax had (X 500, 501), ‘who, seated on his father's knees, ate only marrow and rich fat of sheep.’

[491] οἴνου, in construction like “ὔψου”, l. 489.
