[59] Μηριόνης: the attendant and associate of Idomeneus. See 4.254.

Φέρεκλον: a short form of “Φερεκλῆς”. cf. “Πάτροκλος”, which has forms from “Πατροκλέης”. See on “Σθένελον Δ” 367.

Τέκτονος: unless this name is freely invented to suit the situation (Carpenter, son of Joiner), as is entirely reasonable, it would imply hereditary taste and skill in working in wood. cf. the name of the Ithacan bard, “Φήμιος Τερπιάδης, χ” 330 f., and that of the Phaeacian bard, “Δημόδοκος, θ” 44.
