[158] οὐ μέν πως: (but) surely in no way, by no means. Const. with “ἅλιον”. ‘Adversative asyndeton,’ § 2 m, “μέν” being nearly equiv. to the Attic “μέντοι”.

ἅλιον: predicate, of no effect.

ὅρκιον: only here in the singular. This with the “αἷμα, σπονδαί”, and “δεξιαί” formed the “ὅρκια” of 157.

159 = 2.341.

ἄκρητοι: the wine for solemn libations was not mixed with water, as was usual for drinking.

ἐπέπιθμεν: for the form, see § 31 c.
