[201] Homer only intimates the insanity of Bellerophon.—cf. qui miser in campis maerens er rabat Aleis, | ipse suum cor edens hominum vestigia vitans Cic. Tusc. iii. 26. 63, ‘Lest . . . as once Bellerophon, on th' Aleian field I fall, | Erroneous there to wander and forlorn,’ Milton Par. Lost vii. 17 ff.

κάπ: “κατά.

τὸ Ἀλήιον: in appos. with “πεδίον”. Clearly connected in derivation by the poet with “ἀλᾶτο”, as the ‘Plain of Wandering.’ Herodotus, vi. 95, mentions an “Ἀλήιον πεδίον” in Cilicia.

πάτον κτλ.: parallel to “οἶος” above.

πάτον: footsteps.
