[658] This episode is intended for the glorification of the Rhodians.

Ἀστυόχεια: “Ἀστυδάμεια” is the name given her by Pindar.

βίῃ Ἡρακληείῃ: periphrasis for all cases of “Ἡρακλέης”, which was not suited to the verse; see § 18 m. For the periphrasis, cf. v. 851, 3.105; see § 2 s. — Horace (Carm. i. 3. 36) uses Herculeus labor in another sense.
