[576] Πυλαιμένεα: cf. “Παφλαγόνων δ᾽ ἡγεῖτο Πυλαιμένεος λάσιον κῆρ Β” 851. The ‘ultima’ is treated as long, before the verse-pause. § 41 p.

ἑλέτην: slew. Cf. 50. Both Greek warriors, standing side by side (570), threw their spears at the same time. The one hit Pylaemenes, and the other hit the charioteer. — This passage is inconsistent with 13.658 f., where Pylaemenes is alive and follows the corpse of his son from the battlefield.
