Τηλεμάχοιο κτλ.: as a third person might speak of Odysseus, instead of “ἐμέ”. cf. Odysseus's oath, “μηδ᾽ ἔτι Τηλεμάχοιο πατὴρ κεκλημένος εἴην” 2.260. Some have found here in the name “Τηλέ-μαχος” a play upon “προ-μάχοισι. — μιγέντα” (“μ<*>´γνυμι”): aor. partic., without reference to time ‘prior to the action of the principal verb.’ Inceptive aorist.
