[37] Ἀλέξανδρος: in appos. with the subj. of “ἔδυ”, expressed here for the sake of the contrast with “Ἀτρέος υἱόν”.

38 = “Ζ 325. — αἰσχροῖς”: i.e. reproachful, cf.ὸνειδείοις Β” 277.

39 = 13.769.

Δύσπαρι: a determinative compound (G. 132. 2; H. 590), stronger than “Unhappy Paris”; cf. “μῆτερ δύσμητερ ψ 97, Κακοΐλιον οὐκ” “ὀνομαστήν Ψ 19, Δύσπαρις, αἰνόπαρις, κακὸν Ἑλλάδι βωτιανείρῃ” Alcman 40.

εἶδος ἄριστε: as v 124; in contrast with “Δύσπαρι”, cf. v. 45, “κάκ̓ ἐλέγχεα, εἶδος ἀγητοί Ε 787, Π” 142. Thus the excellence that is granted is made a reproach.

ἠπεροπευτά: cf. v. 399.
