σύντρεις may be so written on the analogy of “ξυνεείκοσι” Od.14. 98, or “σύνδυο” h. Hom. Ven. 74. If we adopt, with some good MSS, “σὺν τρεῖς αἰνύμενος” we must treat it as a tmesis, and may compare “συναίνυτο” Il.21. 502.φόρεσκε. The iterative tense is used, because there were several successive groups of three.
