[380] “ἔγχει κτλ”.: emphatic at the beginning of the verse, and the close of the sent., cf. “βάλλε Α” 52. Const. with “ἐπόρουσε. — ἐξήρπαξε”: the poet recognizes no chance rescue; see on 1.8; cf. 5.314 where Aeneas is saved by Aphrodite, and 20.325 where the same hero is rescued by Poseidon.

381 = 20.444, cf. “Λ 752, Φ 549, 597. — ῥεῖα κτλ”.: “easily, as only a god can.”

ἐκάλυψε δέ: “and made him invisible.” cf. “σάωσε δὲ νυκτὶ καλύψας Ε 23, πολλὴν ἠέρα χεῦε η” 15.
