[550] Zeus, in his excitement, passes at once to apply his principle to the present situation, instead of giving to the apod. a general form corresponding to the prot.

ταῦτα: refers to Hera's question, v. 540.

ἕκαστα: i.e. the details, exaggerated in his anger. —“διείρεο κτλ”.: for the use of two verbs, cf. v. 553, “νῦν δ̓ ἐθέλω ἔπος ἄλλο μεταλλῆσαι καὶ ἐρέσθαι γ” 243; see § 1 s.

551 = “Δ 50, Π 439, *<*>ς 360, Υ” 309.

βοῶπις: ox-eyed; with deep, dark, majestically quiet eyes. This epith., like “λευκώλενος” v. 55, is almost peculiar to Hera; it is applied to two mortal women, “Γ 144, Η” 10, and to one nymph, 18.40,—all in passages suspected of interpolation.

552 = “Δ 25, Θ 462, Ξ 330, Π 440, Σ” 361.

ποῖον: pred. Equiv. to “ποῖος δ μῦθός ἐστιν ὃν ἔειπες”. This is a mere excl., and expects no answer; cf. “οἷον ἔειπεν Β” 194.
