455-483. Six splendid comparisons, each of which progressively gives prominence to a new point: (1) the gleam of their armor, vs. 455-458; (2) their noisy tumult, vs. 459-466; (3) their multitude, vs. 467 f.; (4) their eagerness for the fray, vs. 469-473; (5) their marshalling leaders, vs. 474-479; (6) Agamemnon as commander-in-chief, vs. 480-483. See § 2 g.
