[872] ος: refers to the principal person, “Νάστης” v. 867.

καί: marks the agreement with “ἀγλαὰ τέκνα” v. 871, cf. v. 866.

χρυσὸν ἔχων: with gold ornaments, prob. the gold spirals used in fastening his long hair, cf. “πλοχμοί θ̓” (braids of hair) “οἳ χρυσῷ τε καὶ ἀργύρῳ ἐσφήκωντο” (were gathered up) 17.52. See on v. 11. cf. “χρυσέη” as an epith. of Aphrodite, “Γ 64. χρυσόν” here cannot refer to gold armor such as that of Glaucus (6.236), Nestor (8.193), or Achilles (18.475), since that was an honor and no reproach. Nastes was the Trojan Nireus (vs. 671 ff.).

ἠύτε κούρη: like a vain girl.
