[389] ἔριδα πτολέμοιο τάνυσσαν, see on 7.102. Poseidon and Hector are here treated as two equal powers, like Poseidon and Zeus in N; a thoroughly un-Homeric conception. ἀρ́ηγων itself is a word suited to an ally from without, but not to a general commanding his own troops; cf. 5.507, 511. For the gen. πτολέμοιο cf. “νεῖκος πολέμοιο”, 13.271.
