[519] οὐδ᾽ ἦλθον κτλ.: repeats the preceding thought in slightly varied form.

ἐναίσιμον (“ἐν αἴσῃ”): at the right time. Cognate accusative.

ὡς ἐκέλευες: cf. 331, 364.—Paris evidently is in high spirits, and plumes himself on overtaking Hector, as he had said that he would do, 341. These two verses are ironical. Paris forms an admirable foil for the heavy heart of Andromache.
