[72] ἐύ: seems to strengthen “πάντα”, as Od. 18.260; cf. “μάλα πάντα β 306. — ἀγέσθω”: mid., take as his own.

73 = v. 256; cf. v. 94.

οἱ δ̓ ἄλλοι: but you, the rest. Elsewhere, when at the beginning of the verse, but they, the others; as vs. 94, 256. “οἱ δ̓ ἄλλοι” includes both Trojans and Achaeans, and a division into “οἱ μέν, οἱ δέ” might be expected; but instead of this the 2d pers. (“ϝαίοιτε”) appears in the first member, and “τοὶ δὲ νεέσθων” in the second. cf. vs. 256 ff., Od. 24.483 ff.

φιλότητα: zeugmatically connected with “ταμόντες” which is construed strictly only with “ὅρκια. — ταμόντες”: see on B 124.
