[29] πᾶσιν κτλ.: cf. “Π 280, Σ” 223. See on 4.208. Here the Trojans are stimulated to fear and flight.

ἀτὰρ κτλ.: Athena plots to remove Ares, the friend of the Trojans (see on 4.439), from the field of battle, in order to give free course to her favorite, Diomed. This action of Athena is not wholly satisfactory, however, since she is everywhere represented as far mightier than Ares, and after a time she aids Diomed in wounding Ares and driving him from the field, 827-867.
