[340] καί: after “τέ . . . τέ”, gives special prominence to this clause.

πρὸς τοῦ βασιλῆος ἀπηνέος: before that king, the cruel king, equiv. to “πρὸς τούτου τοῦ βασιλέως τοῦ ἀπηνοῦς”. For the order of words, cf. v. 11, “τὸν λωβητῆρα ἐπεσβόλον Β 275, τὰ τεύχεα καλά Φ 317, τοῦ παιδὸς ἀγαυοῦ λ 492, τὸν ξεῖνον δύστηνον ρ” 10. Since the art. is still a dem. in Homer, the foregoing are merely apparent exceptions to the rule that the attributive adj. stands between the article and its noun.

δὴ αὖτε: for the synizesis, cf. v. 131.

αὖτε: not again, marking a repetition; but indicating a situation opposed to the present, cf. v. 237.
