“ἀμφιχυθεὶς πατέρ᾽ ἐσθλὸν ὀδύρετο”, Od.22. 498“αἱ μὲν ἄρ᾽ ἀμφεχέοντο καὶ ἠσπάζοντ᾽ Ὀδυσῆα”. In the present passage ἀμφοτέρω stands as the equivalent of the reciprocal “ἀλλήλους” in Il.23. 98(quoted above), and therefore is in close connection with the participle, although grammatically the subject of “τεταρπώμεσθα. τέρπεσθαι γόοιο” ( Il.23. 10; 24.513; Od.19. 213, 251) is ‘to take one's fill of lamentation.’ Seiler quotes Ov. Trist. 4. 3. 37 “‘est quaedam flere voluptas.’”
