[305] ἡμεῖς δέ: independent sent. explaining “ὅτε κτλ”. v. 303.

ἀμφὶ περί: on both sides around, round about. Such a spring is still shown at Aulis.

κατὰ βωμούς: cf. “κατὰ στρατόν” etc., see on 1.318; the numerous altars of the different tribes occupied considerable space. Evidently the Greeks had no temple there, or it would have been mentioned. As in the earliest times of their religion, the woods are their temples.
