πανώλει expresses intense hatred, as in Ph. 1357Odysseus is “τῷ πανώλει παιδὶ τῷ Λαερτίου.

παρεῖτο, lit., ‘had been neglected,’—allowed to pass out of his thoughts. This plpf. (identical in form with the 2nd aor.) is somewhat rare: cp. however Thuc. 4. 103καθεῖτο” (followed by “καθειστήκει”): Critias 117 C “ἀφεῖτο” (preceded by “ἐκεχειρούργητο”).

The sense does not absolutely require us to take Μενέλεω δ̓ as=“τῶν δὲ Μενέλεω” (“παίδων”); but that is clearly what is meant.
