[397] ἐν πύλῳ κτλ.: in the gateway, among the dead. This seems to refer to the time when Heracles fetched up the three-headed dog Cerberus for Eurystheus, while Hades, surrounded by the dead, stood in the portal of the nether world and would prevent his passage. But it may refer to the same contest as that in which Hera was wounded. See on 392.

ὀδύνῃσιν κτλ.: cf. “ρ 567, μ᾽ ἀχέεσσί γε δώσεις τ 167, αὐτὸν ἐγὼ Μοίσαισι δώσω” Pind. Pyth. iv. 67.
