προπάροιθεν ὁμίλου: sc. as “πρόμαχος. — μακρὰ βιβάντα”: with long strides. This gives the manner of “ἐρχόμενον”. It is here a sign of courage, for Paris was no coward; cf. “Η 213, Ν 809, Ο” 307, 676, 686, longe gradientem Verg. Aen. x. 572, ‘Satan with vast and haughty strides advanced’ Milton Par. Lost, vi. 109, and (as a sign of pride) Od. 11.539.
