[90] καλέσαντα. Cp. Schol. ad Il.1. 542 δὲ φράσις συνήθης ἀπὸ δοτικῆς εἰς αἰτιατικὴν ἔρχεσθαι”, that is, from dative to accusative. See note on Od. 6. 60, and 10. 566.

Ἀχαιούς. This is properly the name of the dominant tribe in N. Greece and the Peloponnese. They were also found in Ithaca ( Od.1. 324), and in Crete ( Od.19. 175); but the word was used as the common designation of the Greek race. They wore the hair altogether unshorn (“κάρη κομ”.). Cp. the description of the Abantes, Il.2. 542ὄπιθεν κομόωντες”.
