οἴῳ: Homeric divinities appeared only to single persons; not to companies of men, except when disguised in human form; cf. “δ 367, π” 161, where Athena is seen by Odysseus but not by Telemachus. Only to the people of the fairy-land Phaeacia were the gods wont to appear visibly, cf. Od. 7.201 ff. — “τῶν δ̓ ἄλλων κτλ”.: the thought of the first word of the verse is repeated in neg. form.
