[16] Ἀτρεΐδα δύω: for “δύω” with the dual, cf. “Αἴαντε δύω Β 406, Γ 18, λέοντε δύω, Ε” 554. This dual form is infrequent. Menelaus, king of Sparta (2.586), as husband of Helen, is associated with his brother Agamemnon; cf. “Β 408, Κ” 25 ff., “Ἀχαιῶν δίθρονον κράτος” Aesch. Ag. 108, “δικρατεῖς Ἀτρεῖδαι” Soph. Aj. 252.

κοσμήτορε: “κοσμέω” is used in the sense of the later “τάσσω”, cf. “Β 554, Γ” 1, § 2 v.
