[505] τίμησον: by its position is strongly contrasted with “ἠτίμησεν” v. 507, cf. vs. 353, 356.

ὠκυμορώτατος: into this is condensed the thought of vs. 415 ff.

ἄλλων: of all, lit. in comparison with the rest; ablatival gen., as with the comp. (where it marks the starting point of the comparison). This constr. with “ἄλλων” is specifically Homeric; cf. “Β 674, Ζ 295, ἄριστοι τῶν ἄλλων Μ 104, πανύστατος ἄλλων Ψ 532, ὀιζυρώτατον ἄλλων ε 105, κάλλιστον ἑπταπύλῳ φανὲν Θῆβᾳ τῶν προτέρων φάος” Soph. Ant. 100, [“τὸν πόλεμον”] “ἐλπίσας μέγαν τε ἔσεσθαι καὶ ἀξιολογώτατον τῶν προγεγενημένων” Thuc. i. “Ι”, hi ceterorum Britannorum fugacissimi Tac. Agric. 34, solusque omnium ante se principum [Vespasianus] in melius mutatus est Tac. Hist. i. 50, ‘Adam the goodliest man of men since born | His sons, the fairest of her daughters, Eve.’ Milton Par. Lost iv. 323 f. — cf. this const. with “μετὰ πᾶσιν ἀτιμοτάτη” v. 516.
