[809] 809 = 8.58.

πᾶσαι πύλαι: the whole gate, — the Scaean (3.145) or Dardanian (5.789) gates, leading from the city to the plain. Homer does not mention any other gates of the city. “πύλαι” is always plural in Homer, of one gate with two wings or doors (“σανίδες”).

810 = “Θ 59, ω” 70. The second hemistich also “Δ 449, Θ 63. — ἱππῆες”: cf. “ἱππότα” v. 336; not mounted like the Attic “ἱππῆς”.
