[596] For οὐδέ κέ μ᾽ οἴκου Bekker, ed. 2, reads “οὐδέ με ϝοίκου”. But “οἶκος” does not invariably take the “Ϝ.” Cp. Od.14. 318ἐς οἶκον Od., 15. 21 βούλεται οἶκον Od., 16. 70 ὑποδέξομαι οἴκῳ Od., 23. 8 οἵ τέ οἱ οἶκον”. In Il.24. 471; Od.2. 45, 226; 7. 68; 15. 374 “οἶκος” is preceded by “νῦ ἐφελκυστικόν”. Cp. also Od.17. 455; 20. 105; 21. 188; 16. 303, where “ἐξ” not “ἐκ” precedes “οἴκου”.

τοκήων is used loosely here to express mother and grandsire; compare the use of “τοκήων”, of the ancestors of Areta and Alcinous, Od.7. 54.
