[292] τοῦ: i.e. Pandarus. Const. with “γλῶσσαν”.

ἀπό: const. with “τάμε”. cf. 214, “ἀπὸ στομάχους ἀρνῶν τάμε νηλέι χαλκῷ Γ 292, ἀπ᾽ ἀσφάραγον” (windpipe) “μελίη” (ashen spear) “τάμε χαλκοβάρεια Χ 328. — γλῶσαν πρυμνήν”: the tongue at the root. Commentators have found here a special punishment for the tongue of Pandarus which had boasted too much.
