ἡμιτελής: half-finished. He left home for the war before he could complete his house. He had hardly begun life for himself when he was killed. cf. “τὴν οἰκίαν ἐκτελέσαι μοι πρότερον ἐπίτρεψον ἡμιτελὴς γὰρ ὁ δόμος καταλέλειπται” Lucian Catapl. 8.Δάρδανος ἄνηρ: a Dardanian warrior, as II 807. Acc. to the later amplified form of the story, this was Hector; but Homer does not call any Trojan “Δάρδανος”, though the Dardanians were included among the “Τρῶες”.
