As with ‘fuerant’ must be supplied ‘nota,’ so here with ἔστιν Nitzsch would supply “τιμήεσσα”. But it is possible that “περί” is the word to be repeated:—‘is honoured above all, as she is [in worth] above all.’ Cp. Od.1. 66“ὃς περὶ μὲν νόον ἐστὶ βροτῶν περὶ δ᾽ ἱρὰ θεοῖσιν” “ἀθανάτοισιν ἔδωκε”. After ἔστιν the construction with τετίμηται is resumed in “ἔκ τε φίλων κ.τ.λ.” For the construction with ἐκ compare “ἐφίληθεν ἐκ Διός” Il.2. 669.
