ἄρκιος, certain, see note on 2.393, and cf. 15.502, Od. 18.358. But it must be admitted that in this place the sense sufficient, ample (“ἀρκεῖν”) is more natural; so also Hes. Opp. 370 “μισθὸς δ᾽ ἀνδρὶ φίλωι εἰρημένος ἄρκιος ἔστω”, and 351Hes. Opp., 501Hes. Opp., 577. Ap. Rhod. and the later Epic imitative poets seem to have taken it in the same way.
