A closer definition of the preceding half-verse.ἧχι: cf. 1.607. συμβάλλετον: dual although but one subj. has preceded. This position of a dual or plural verb, between two sing. subjs., is called “σχῆμα Ἀλκμανικόν”. cf. “Κάστωρ τε πώλων ὠκέων δματῆρες, ἱππόται σοφοί,ι καὶ Πωλυδεύκης κυδρός” Alcman 2, “εἰ δέ κ᾽ Ἄρης ἄρχωσι μάχης ἢ Φοῖβος Ἀπόλλων γ” 138. ἠδέ: for the ‘quantity’ of the last syllable, before “Σκ”, cf. 49; see § 41 i “ε”.
