αἰδοίηΝ κτλ.”: Gemoll compares Theog. 193 f. “ἔνθεν ἔπειτα περίρρυτον ἵκετο Κύπρον”,

ἐκ δ᾽ ἔβη αἰδοίη καλὴ θεός”, and Theog. 17 for the collocation “χρυσοστέφανον καλήν”. The epithet “αἰδοίη” “reverend” is the keynote of the hymn, and is suitable to a goddess whose cult, as Farnell observes (Cults ii. p. 668) is on the whole pure and austere; see also h. Aphr. Introd. p. 196.
