[100] ὅν περ κτλ.: “although men say.”

θεᾶς: const. with the following “ἐξ”. cf. 5.637; see on “Ἰλίου” 60. — The caesura falls, as usual, in the the third foot, after “θεᾶς”. Here it is no musical rest, but a hold, making “θεᾶς” prominent.

ἀλλά: in contrast to the preceding rel. clause, leads back to the thought of 98.
