[305] ἠνεμόεσσαν: the epith. is well deserved acc. to Dr. Schliemann, who in his excavations at Hissarlik was much disturbed by the constant winds which drove the dust into the eyes of the workmen. He thinks that such continual wind-storms are known nowhere else on earth. ‘The winds blew about us with such force that we often felt as if our whole settlement might be hurled down the precipice.’
