[412] μή: warns against the consequences if some mightier god should enter the combat.

δήν: long. Const. with “γοόωσα. — περίφρων”: thrown by the rhythm with “Ἀδρηστίνη”.

Ἀδρηστίνη: for the fem. patronymic, see § 21 i. Cf. also “Εὐηνίνη, Ι” 557, daughter of Euenus; and “Ὠκεανίνη” (of the Styx) Hesiod Theog. 389. — Diomed's father, Tydeus, acc. to 14.121, married a daughter of Adrastus, king of Argos. Thus Diomed seems to have married his aunt; as Iphidamas married his mother's sister, 11.226. But perhaps “Ἀδρηστίνη” may be used for grand-daughter of Adrastus, as “Αἰακίδης, Β” 860, is applied to Achilles, the grandson of Aeacus. In the latter case, Aegialea would be Diomed's cousin.
