[409] ἀδελφεόν: the subj. of the subord. clause is taken by anticipation (“Η”. 878) as the obj. of the principal clause, cf. v. 348, “Γ 192, Ε 85, γ 86, δ” 832, 836, ‘I know thee who thou art’ St. Luke iv. 34.—The form “ἀδελφός” is not Homeric; “κασίγνητος” is found in Homer about twice as freq. as “ἀδελφεός”.

ὡς ἐπονεῖτο: how busy he was in preparing for the feast and the battle.
