πήματ᾽ ἔπασχον: although the god Ares could not die, yet he assumes that he might have lain as dead. Hence the contrast with “ζώς” 887. cf. Ares's words, “εἴ πέρ μοι καὶ μοῖρα Διὸς πληγέντι κεραυνῷ κεῖσθαι ὁμοῦ νεκύεσσι μεθ᾽ αἵματι καὶ κονίῃσιν Ο” 117 f.ἐν κτλ.: cf. 16.661. The second half-verse defines “αὺτοῦ”.
