[565] Εὐρύαλος: appears in the combat 6.20 ff. He boxes unsuccessfully with Epeüs (builder of the wooden horse), 23.677 ff.

566 = 23.678.

Μηκιστῆος: brother of Adrastus, and thus great-uncle of Diomed.

υἱός: the first syllable is here short, the “ι” being pronounced much like a y, rather than forming part of a diphthong; cf. 1.489 and note.

Ταλαϊονίδαο: this seems to be formed by a cumulation of suffixes from “Τάλαος”, cf. “Λαομεδοντιάδη Γ” 250 from “Λαομέδων, Ὑπεριονίδης μ” 176 (equiv. to “Ὑπερίων”); see § 21 j.
