Ἥλιον: the later form, in Homer, only Od. 8.271. In the hymns also “Ἠέλιος” is regular. For the invocation to Calliope cf. Alcman fr. 45 (Smyth 18)Μῶσ᾽ ἄγε, Καλλιόπα, θύγατερ Διός”,

ἄρχ᾽ ἐρατῶν ἐπέων”, Bacchyl.v. 176 etc.
αὖτε, “now”; the word does not imply other hymns. Baumeister compares Terpander fr. 2ἀμφί μοι αὖτε ἄναχθ᾽ ἑκαταβόλον κτλ.
