[249] τοῦ: rel., limiting “γλώσσης”.

καί: also, belongs to the whole sent., referring to “ἡδυεπής” which is explained by the comparison; cf. v. 406, 2.827, 866, 872. — For the comparison, cf. [“χόλος”] “πολὺ γλυκίων μέλιτος καταλειβομένοιο Σ” 109. — Cicero translates, ex eius lingua melle dulcior fluebat oratio de Sen. 10; cf. Homerici senis mella tibi profluere Pliny Ep. iv. 3, “γλυκερή οἱ ἀπὸ στόματος ῥέει αὐδή” Hes. Theog. 97.
