[633] “Why should you come here to play the coward?”

ἐόντι: thrown with “ἐνθάδε” by the rhythm of the verse. “Now that you are here in the Troad.” cf. “ἐλθόντ᾽ ἐκ Λυκίης” 645. — This participial clause stands in an adversative relation to the principal thought, since ‘coming to Troy’ is equiv. to ‘coming to fight’; while “μάχης κτλ”. is pred. with “πτώσσειν”.

ἀδαήμονι: const. with “τοί” above.
