[703] “οὐδὲ μὲν οὐδὲ κτλ”.: as v. 726. The repetition of the neg. gives it great weight. The first neg. belongs to the whole sem.; the second is to be const. closely with “οἱ”, — neque vero ne hi quidem. — “πόθεόν γε μέν [μήν]”: lit. they missed him indeed, equiv. to “καὶ ποθοῦντές περ ἀρχόν”. The word before γε μέν is made prominent and always forms an adversative asyndeton (see § 2 m). The Eng. idiom introduces such a clause by yet, but.

ἀρχόν: i.e. their former leader.
