[424] πόντῳ: on the high sea. Local, like “χέρσῳ” 425.

μέν τε: correl. with “αὐτάρ”. cf. 442, “Γ 330, Λ 476, 481, α” 215.

κορύσσεται: lifts its head. Lit. puts on its crest, in which is contained another metaphor.

ἔπειτα: secondly, next.

424-426 are not necessary for the comparison, but give it great animation.
