[230] Ἰδομενεύς: see on “Α 145, Β” 645. Idomeneus is named by Helen without any question of Priam; at sight of him she cannot suppress the memory of a happy past, and hence the longing for her brothers. A more mechanical reason for the change in the form of question and answer, is that the repetition of Priam's inquiry would become monotonous.

θεὸς ὥς: equiv. to “θεοειδής” v. 16, “θεοείκελε Α 131, θεῷ ἐναλίγκιος β” 5.
