[202] τίπτ̓ αὖτε: “What now! why art thou come?” “αὖτε” is here not equiv. to “αὖτις”, and does not imply that she had been there before, but is uttered in a tone of vexation; cf. “ μοι ἐγώ, τέων αὖτε βροτῶν ἐς γαῖαν ἱκάνω; Od. 6.119 O woe is me, to the land of what mortals do I come now?

τίπτε εἰλήλουθας [“ἐλήλυθας”]: for this greeting, cf. “τέκνον, τίπτε λιπὼν πόλεμον θρασὺν εἰλήλουθας;Ζ 254, ε” 87.

αἰγιόχοιο . . . τέκος: ten times repeated in Homer, cf. § 1 q.
