δοκεῖν -- ὄντα . δοκεῖν is here ‘to fancy’ not ‘to seem.’ Contrast II 381 E ἡμῖν δὲ ποιοῦσι δοκεῖν σφᾶς παντοδαποὺς φαίνεσθαι—a passage which is cited by Hartman to justify ποιῆσαι as against the variant πεῖσαι. περί τε τῶν -- παθημάτων. This clause is rejected by Herwerden. The difficulty—which lies in the collocation of Ἰθάκῃ the place and Ὀδυσσείᾳ the poem—is no doubt lessened by reading (with Richards) καὶ ἐν or κἀν before ὅλῃ, but does not wholly disappear. Possibly the last twelve books of the Odyssey, in which the scene is Ithaca, were sometimes known collectively as Ἰθάκη.
