πενθερῷ: the Homeric language was not so poor as to have but one word for ‘father-in-law,’ but distinguished “πενθερός” wife's father from “ἑκυρός” husband's father. Cf. “γαλόως” husband's sister, “εἰνάτερες” husband's brothers' wives, 378. — Antea's father was called Iobates, acc. to the later story.
