πάντοσ᾽ ἀτυζομένων, ‘flying scared every way.’ Cp. “ἀτυζόμενοι πεδίοιο” of runaway horses, Il.6. 38; of routed troups Il., 18. 7.The cry of the ghosts seems to be imitated in the reiteration of the “ω”.νυκτὶ ἐοικώς, used of a stern lowering look; not unlike to our vernacular ‘looking as black as thunder.’ It is applied to Apollo in wrath, Il.1. 47; and to Hector, Il.12. 463, who is farther described as “νυκτὶ θοῇ ἀτάλαντος ὑπώπια”, reminding us of the phrase “ὑπόδρα ἰδών”.
