[268] φηρσίν: cf. “φῆρας Β 743. φήρ” is the Thessalian form of “θήρ” (cf. fera); it is used by Homer only of the centaurs, whose homes were in Thessaly. The centaurs are not described by Homer, but their dual nature (half man, half horse) seems to have been not yet developed in the story.

ἀπόλεσσαν: “ἀπώλεσαν”.
