[422] ἔλθῃσιν, sc. “βοῦς”, as inf. 430.

ἐπιβουκόλος. See Lehrs, Aristarch. p. 107 foll., s.v. “ἐπίουρος”: ‘Bene Aristarchus attenderat ad hoc genus compositionis cuius certissima sunt apud Homerum exempla. Sic “μετάγγελος”, h.e. internuntius, “ψ.” 199; O. 144. Et ut “μετάγγελος” est “ μετά τισιν ἄγγελος”, sic “ἐπιβουκόλος” et “ἐπιβώτωρ, βουκόλος, βώτωρ ὢν ἐπί τινων”, minime vero id quod Nitzschium velle video (ad Hom. Od.3. 422) pastoribus praefectum significat.’ Cp. “ἐπιμάρτυρος, ἐπαμύντωρ, ἐπαρωγός”. For the pleonasm in “βοῶν ἐπιβουκόλος” compare “αἰπόλος αἰγῶνHom. Od.17. 247, “ἐν προδόμῳ δόμουHom. Od.4. 302, “συῶν συβόσιαHom. Od.14. 101, “ποδάνιπτρα ποδῶν” 19. 343. Also see inf. 472 “οἶνον οἰνοχοεῦντες”.
