[106] αὐτός: in person; the old king being contrasted with his sons. The poet forgets the periphrasis and proceeds as if he had said “Πρίαμον”, cf. “ἐλθὼν ἐκάκωσε βίη Ἡρακληείη Λ 690. — ἐπεί”: this introduces the first reason; the second follows with “αἰεὶ δέ” v. 108.

οἶ: for him, his; see § 3 g.

παῖδες: this refers primarily to Paris; for the pl. cf. v. 49.
