ἱμερόεις … γόος. The epithetmay be rendered by ‘longing’ or ‘yearning.’ We have “κρυερὸς γόος” in Od.4. 103, “ὀλοὸς γόος” Il.23. 10; but this describes the tenderer feeling produced by the “ἵμερος γόοιο” Od.4. 113, which is called “γλυκὺς ἵμερος” Od.22. 500.The regular construction of ὑποδῦναι is with the personal accusative, but it is used here with an ethical dative, as Soph. Phil.1111“ἀλλά μοι ἄσκοπα”“κρυπτά τ᾽ ἔπη δολερᾶς ὑπέδυ φρενός”. Seiler quotes as instances of “εἰσιέναι” or “εἰσέρχεσθαί τινι” Soph. O. C.372; Eur. I. A.1580; Hdt.1. 24Hdt., 3. 14; Plato, Pol. 330 D; Phaed. 59 A. But in Eur. Med.57“ὥσθ᾽ ἵμερός μ᾽ ὑπῆλθε”.
