[182] ἀλιτρός, used of a culprit Il.8. 361, has here a sportive tone. ‘In sooth thou art a rogue, and not simplehearted.’ Calypso is laughing at the prudent way in which Odysseus manages to take care of himself. Full of craft himself, he suspects a crafty intention in every one else. For ἀποφώλια see Od.8. 177.
