[534] ἐξ ἑδέων: from their seats. Each god had his separate dwelling on Olympus, vs. 607 f., and his special seat in the hall in which they gathered. “ἕδος” is strictly not seat (“ἕδρη”) but place where the seat stands. — “σφοῦ κτλ.:” proleptic, with “ἄνεσταν”, they rose and went to meet their father. Motion is implied in the connection, as below. — This mark of respect is noted both negatively and affirmatively. — When Hera returns to Olympus, the gods “ἰδόντες πάντες ἀνήιξαν, καὶ δεικανόωντο δέπασσιν Ο” 85 f. — “οὐδὲ κτλ”.: a formula occurring nine times at the close of a verse.
