[22] Ἀθηναίη: prominent by its position before the pause.

ἀκέων: seems strictly a participle, but it became stereotyped, and is here used as an adverb. “ἀκέουσα” is used 1.565, 569. For an adv. with “ἦν”, cf. 277, 319, “Α 416, Ζ” 131.

οὐδέ τι εἶπεν: freq. in Homer, the last clause of the verse repeats the meaning of the earlier clause in more definite, or at least in different, form.—Athena was too angry to speak.
