ὄγκον, ‘pomp,’ Tr. 817.Cp. Shakesp. Merch. 1. 1. 124showing a more swelling port | Than my faint means would grant continuance.

ἄρῃ, ‘take upon thee,’ ‘assume’: subjunct. of 1st aor. “ἠράμην” (not of 2nd aor. “ἠρόμην”, which would have α^). The sense of “ἠράμην” is usu. ‘to take up’ or ‘take upon one,’ rarely ‘to win,’ which is the regular sense of “ἠρόμην”. See Appendix on 75.— ἄρῃς (from 1st aor. act. “ἦρα”) has inferior MS. authority, and is also less suitable in sense: it would mean, ‘lift up,’ ‘exalt.’
