[340] νῦν ἐπίμεινον: Hector stood at the door (354), and seemed on the point of departure.

ἀρήια: of war, martial.

δύω: subjunctive. I will put on. No final or temporal particle is to be supplied here. This is a survival of the old construction. GMT. 257. cf. “δεῦτε, δύω μοι ἕπεσθον, ἴδωμ᾽ ὅτιν̓ ἔργα τέτυκται Χ 450, 418, θάπτε με ὅττι τάχιστα: πύλας Ἀίδαο περήσω Ψ” 71.—The verb “δύω” is distinguished from the numeral by the quantity of the penult.

342 = 5.689; cf. 1.511.—Hector is too much vexed at Paris to reply, and not much was to be said. He assents to his brother's last proposition, and is about to depart.
