[283] λίσσομαι: sc. “δέ. — Ἀχιλλῆι”: for the dat. of opposition, cf. “Θ 449, Ν 517, Ξ” 50. For the long “ι” of the dat. sing., see § 18 a. This may be explained also as before the caesural pause (§ 41 p). The name is used with special emphasis, cf. v. 240, instead of the pron. (vs. 275, 281).

μεθέμεν: “μεθεῖναι”, § 34 e; cf. “μεθήμων Β” 241. — “ὃς μέγα κτλ”.: gives the motive for the request.
