[81] “εἴ περ κτλ”.: for even if, with the subjv., as “ δ̓ εἴ πέρ τε τύχῃσι μάλα σχεδόν, οὐ δύναταί σφιν χραισμεῖν Λ” 116 f., 22.191 on v. 82.

χόλον: a burst of anger, while “κότος” is the lasting grudge which plans for revenge, and the “μῆνις” of Achilles led him simply to withdraw from the fight (see on v. 1). “χόλον” is emphasized in contrast with “κότον” by “γέ” and by its chiastic position (§ 2 o).

καταπέψῃ: digest, suppress; cf. “Ἀχιλεὺς . . . ἐπὶ νηυσὶ χόλον θυμαλγέα πέσσει Δ” 512 f.
