[287] πέληται goes closely with “μετά”, lit. ‘go about among men.’ Cf. “κλαγγὴ πέλει οὐρανόθι πρό3.3, “σέο δ᾽ ἐκ τάδε πάντα πέλονται13.632, “αἶσχος λώβη τε μετ᾽ ἀνθρώποισι πέλοιτοOd. 18.225, where the nouns are subjects, as here, not predicates. See also 6.358ἀνθρώποισι πελώμεθ᾽ ἀοίδιμοι”. For the subj. in a relative final clause see H. G. § 322, M. and T. § 568; it is very rare without “κε” (460, 5.33, Od. 18.335 only?). We might of course read “κεν” for καί, but “καὶ ἐσσομένοισι” is the regular phrase.
