[764] Ἐύμηλος: see v. 714.

ποδώκεας: this and the following epiths. are attracted to the construction of the rel. clause; cf. “Λαοδίκην Γ 124, Αἰθίοπας τοὶ διχθὰ δεδαίαται, ἔσχατοι ἀνδρῶν α 23, Κύκλωπος κεχόλωται, ὃν ὀφθαλμοῦ ἀλάωσεν, ἀντίθεον Πολύφημον α” 69 f.

ὄρνιθας: for the length of the last syllable, see on v. 190. For the comparison, cf. “θείειν δ̓ ἀνέμοισιν ὁμοῖοι Κ” 437, of the horses of the Thracian Rhesus.
