[211] ἄμφω δ̓ ἑζομένω: i.e. as listeners; nom. of the whole, almost a nom. abs., since only one of the two persons comprised is mentioned in what follows. The sent. begins as if “Ὀδυσσεὺς μέν, Μενέλαος δέ” were to follow. cf. “Κ 224, Μ” 400; and for other examples of change of const., see E 27, H 8, 306.

γεραρώτερος: cf. v. 170. Menelaus had a short trunk but long legs, and appeared shorter only when they were seated.
