ἀλλὰ καὶ ὥς: “but although I have nothing to gain here, and all that is dear to me is far away,” “though I have no wrongs to avenge on the Trojans, nor any fear of them.” cf. Achilles's words, “οὐ γὰρ ἐγὼ Τρώων ἕνεκ᾽ ἤλυθον αἰχμητάωνͅ δεῦρο μαχησόμενος, ἐπεὶ οὔ τί μοι αἴτιοί εἰσιν:ι οὐ γάρ πώ ποτ̓ ἐμὰς βοῦς ἤλασαν οὐδὲ μὲν ἵππους Α” 152 ff.
