[140] προτέροιο: Helen was no longer wife of Menelaus; so she says of Agamemnon, “δαὴρ” (husband's brother) “αὖτ̓ ἐμὸς ἔσκε” v. 180, while her “δαέρες, Ω” 769, are Priam's sons.

ἄστεος: used of the native city, as “πόλις”, v. 50.

τοκήων: Tyndareüs and Leda were thought of as alive. Tyndareüs is called Helen's father, just as Heracles is called son of Amphitryo, 5.392; this is not inconsistent with vs. 199, 418.
