The thought of the preceding verse is repeated in different form; hence the lack of connective, see § 2 m.γηθήσαι: sing. to agree with the nearest subj.; contrasted with “πένθος ἱκάνει”. The aor. is inceptive; G. 200, 13.5 b; H. 841. — For the chiastic arrangement of verbs and their subjs., see § 2 o. Πρίαμος . . . παῖδες: as “Γ 288, Δ 31, ὠμὸν” (raw) “βεβρώθοις” (sc. Hera) “Πρίαμον Πριάμοιό τε παῖδας Δ” 35; cf. “Αὐτόλυκός τε καὶ υἱέες Αὐτολύκοιο τ” 414.
