[341] γάρ: introduces an explanation of “ἰχώρ” as a more accurate statement of “αἷμα”.

οὐ πίνουσι: this ‘asyndeton’ is natural in any language. “They do not eat; they do not drink.” cf. “οὐ γὰρ ἐμοὶ πείθεσθ᾽ , οὐ Μέντορι ποιμένι λαῶν ω” 456. — The gods eat immortality (“ἀμβροσία”).

αἴθοπα: cf. 4.259.
