[540] ἄβλητος (“βάλλω”), ἀνούτατος (“οὐτάω”): nec eminus nec cominus ictus, “unhit by an arrow, and unhurt by sword or spear.” i.e. if one could look on without danger, — but no one would be safe on such a field except under the special protection of the mighty goddess of war. — cf. suave etiam belli certamina magna tueri| per campos instructa, tua sine parte pericli Lucretius, ii. 5 f.
