[832] “ᾔδεε κτλ”.: Homer knows of no professional soothsayers: Calchas (A 69), Helenus (Z 76), Ennomus (v. 858), Melampus (Od. 15.225), Halitherses (Od. 2.157), — all are introduced as busy in different ways, in war and in peace.

οὐδέ: for the lengthened ultima before the possessive pron., see § 41 m.

οὐδὲ ἔασκεν: ‘resistance to pressure’ is implied in the impf.; he continually refused his consent.
