Τρώιοι ἵπποι: the horses of Tros. Cf. 265 ff., “ἵππους δὲ Τρῴους ὕπαγε” (sc. “Διομήδης”) “ζυγόν, οὕς ποτ᾽ ἀπηύρᾳ Αἰνείαν, ἀτὰρ αὐτὸν ὑπεξεσάωσεν Ἀπόλλων Ψ” 291 f. For the adj., cf. “Νηλήιαι ἵπποι Λ” 597. — Tros was the father of Ilus and Ganymade, and the grandfather of Priam. He gave his name to “Τροίη”, as his son Ilus gave his name to the city of “Ἴλιος. — πεδίοιο”: prob. best const. with “ἐπιστάμενοι” (cf. “μάχης” 11), though generally const. as local gen. with the following infinitives (cf. “ἔρχονται πεδίοιο Β” 801).
