κτύπησε: for the omission of the augment, see on O. T. 1249. Ζεὺς χθ.: Il. 9.457 “Ζεύς τε καταχθόνιος καὶ ἐπαινὴ Περσεφόνεια”. At Corinth Pausanias saw three images of Zeus, one being “Χθόνιος”, another “Ὕψιστος”, the third nameless (2. 2. 8). The Zeus Chthonios was a benevolent Pluto, associated with Demeter in the prayers of the husbandman (Hes. Op. 465).
