[19] εἴμ᾽ Ὀδυσεύς. Virgil imitates this in Aen.1. 378‘Sum pius Aeneas, fama super aethera notus.’

ὃς πᾶσιμέλω. It is not easy to decide whether πᾶσι belongs in the sense of “παντοίοις” to δόλοισιν or to ἀνθρώποισι. The latter is supported by “Ἀργὼ πᾶσι μέλουσα Od.12. 70, but the former seems settled by Od.3. 121ἐπεὶ μάλα πολλὸν ἐνίκα δῖος Ὀδυσσεὺς

παντοίοισι δόλοισι”. Cp. Theogn. 245 “οὐδέ ποτ᾽ οὐδὲ θανὼν ἀπολεῖς κλέος ἀλλὰ μελήσεις
ἄφθιτον ἀνθρώποις αἰὲν ἔχων ὄνομα”.
