[18] αὐτάρ: on the other hand; this gives prominence to “δοῦρε”, since the spears do not belong properly to the archer's equipment, which has just been described.

δοῦρεδύω: as “Μ 298, Φ 145, α” 256; i.e. one in either hand. cf. v. 338. For “δύω” with the dual, see on “Α 16. — κεκορυθμένα κτλ”.: helmeted with bronze, i.e. bronze pointed. For the pl. in agreement with the dual, cf. “Α 200, ὄσσε φαεινά Ν” 435. — cf. bina manu lato crispans hastilia ferro Verg. Aen. i. 313, laeva duo forte gerebat | praefixa hastilia ferro ib. xii. 488 f.
