[303] μηδέ τις: and let no one. This is in close connexion with 302 (as if that had been “σφούς τις ἕκαστος ἵππους ἐχέτω”), and forms the transition to direct discourse, which is elsewhere introduced by some formula. cf. “ἧς ἄρ᾽ ἀνώγεινͅ τοξεύειν: “ὃς μέν κε βάλῃκτλ. Ψ” 854 f., “παρήγγειλεν αὐτοῖς περιμένειν τὴν ἐπαγγελίαν τοῦ πατρὸς ἣν ἠκούσατέ μουActs i. 4.

ἱπποσύνῃ: “skill in fighting on chariots.” Horsemanship was as important an accomplishment for the Homeric heroes as for the knights of the Middle Ages. —“ἠνορέηφι [ἀνδρείᾳ]”: for the ending, see § 15 a.
