[190] καί μιν: this animated repetition from 188 gives prominence to the separate clauses, and prepares the way for the effective contrast, “ἔμπης κτλ”. 191. cf. “καί μιν γουνάσομαι καί μιν πείσεσθαι ὀίω Α” 427, “ μὲν δὴ μάλα πολλὰ πονήσατο νόσφιν ἐμεῖοͅ καὶ δὴ τεῖχος ἔδειμε” (built) “καὶ ἤλασε” (ran) “τάφρον ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ . . . ἀλλ̓ οὐδ̓ ὣς δύναται σθένος Ἕκτορος ἴσχειν Ι” 348 ff.

ἐφάμην: thought.

Ἀιδωνῆι κτλ.: cf. 1.3, 6.487, “Ἀίδᾳ προϊάψαι δορὸς ἄγραν” Aesch. Sept. 309, demittimus Orco Verg. Aen. ii. 398.

Ἀιδωνῆι: for the form, see § 19 f.
