ποδήνεμος: cf. “θείειν” (in running) “δ᾽ ἀνέμοισιν ὁμοῖοι Κ” 437, of the horses of the Thracian Rhesus. Iris is “ἀελλόπος Θ” 409. — Iris here acts on her own impulse, as in 3.121, where she brings Helen to the Scaean Gate, and 23.198 ff., where she calls the winds to rouse the fire in the pyre of Patroclus.
