(“Ἄρης” and “Φόβος φίλος υἱός”) “τὼ μὲν ἄρ᾽ ἐκ Θρῄκης Ἐφύρους μέτα θωρήσσεσθον Ν” 301, Gradivumque patrem, Geticis qui praesidet arvis Verg. Aen. iii. 35. So Ares withdraws to Thrace, just as Aphrodite goes to Cyprus, Od. 8.361.ἡγήτορι^: only here, 11.572, and Od. 10.234, is a vowel left short before a mute and a liquid at this point of the verse.
