ἀνιόντα: as if “τόνδε πατρὸς ἀμείνω” had preceded. The acc. depends on “εἴποι”. G. 165; H. 725 a. The clause “πατρὸς κτλ”. is the other obj. of the verb.—For the thought cf. “παῦροι” (few) “γάρ τοι παῖδες ὁμοῖοι πατρὶ πέλονται”, | “οἱ πλέονες κακίους, παῦροι δέ τε πατρὸς ἀρείους β” 276 f.φέροι: sc. “ἐκ πολέμοιο”. This aids in making the situation vivid.
