[604] Αἰπύτιον: of Aepytus. For the use of the adj., see on “Νηληίψ” v. 20. Aepytus, son of Elatus, was an old Arcadian hero whose descendants reigned long in Arcadia. His mound, which in the time of the early Roman emperors still rested on its circle of stones, reminds scholars of the German graves of the Huns.

ἵνα: sc. “εἰσίν”. For the omission of the copula in a rel. clause<*> cf. “Α 547. — ἀγχιμαχηταί”: elsewhere only an epith. of the Dardanians in the formula “Τρῶες καὶ Λύκιοι καὶ Δάρδανοι ἀγχιμαχηταί Θ” 173. These are combatants with sword, spear, and battle-axe, in contrast with bowmen, slingers, or javelin-throwers. The Arcadians are called “ἐγχεσίμωροι Η” 134.
