[421] ὀρνυμένου: as he started.

ὑπό: const. with “εἷλεν”. This refers to the weakness of his knees; see on 314. cf. “ὑπό τε τρόμος” (trembling) “ἔλλαβε γυῖα Γ 34, τρόμος ὑπήλυθε γυῖα Υ” 44.

ταλασίφρονά περ: even a stout-hearted man.

κεν εἷλεν: would have seized, sc. if he had been there. cf. 539. In prose, this might have been stated as a consequence, “so that,” etc.

Here ends the “Ἐπιπώλησις” of Agamemnon. That he returns at once to his special division, is assumed.
