Λοκρῶν: both the Epicnemidian (north of Daphnus on the Euboean Sea) and the Opuntian (so named from Opus the capital, south of Daphnus) Locrians, which are not yet distinguished by Homer. The poet does not mention the Ozolian Locrians (on the Corinthian Gulf).Ὀιλῆος: gen of connection, with “Αἴας”. See G. 167, 1; <*>. 729 a, 730 a. Cf. “Τελαμώνιος Αἴας”, where the adj. is equiv. to a gen. ταχύς: cf. celerem sequi Aiacem Hor. Carm. i. 15. 18. In the funeral games in honor of Patroclus, this Ajax runs a race with Odysseus and would have won the prize, but Athena caused him to slip (23.754 ff.).—He was shipwrecked and drowned on the voyage home from Troy (Od. 4.499 ff.).
