nec minus haec nostri notescet fama sepulcri,
quam fuerant Phthii busta cruenta viri.’

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. 66ὃς 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.
