λέγ̓ ὀνείδεα: rehearsed, enumerated, reproaches;λέγειν” in Homer is never strictly equiv. to “εἰπεῖν”. Thersites accused the king of covetousness, sensuality, cowardice, injustice.

τῷ: Agamemnon, at whom the Achaeans were then angry, so that Thersites could be sure of the applause of his audience.
