[159] ἐέδνοισι βρίσας, ‘having prevailed by his gifts.’ σέ is governed by ἀγάγηται, not by βρίσας, for “βρίθειν” in Homer always bears a neuter sense, as in Il.18. 561; Od.16. 474; 9.219. So in Soph. Aj.130χειρὶ βρίθειν”, Eur. Troad.216ὄλβῳ βρίθειν”. But in Pind. Nem.8. 30; Aesch. Pers.346, etc., it is used transitively. So Eustath. here, “τὸ βρίσας ἀντὶ τοῦ νικήσας ἕδνων πλήθει τοὺς ἄλλους μνηστῆρας”.
