[539] For οὐκέτι there was a curious variant “οὔ κέ τι”; it is not quite clear from the scholia whether Ar. adopted it or not. If so, he probably did it on the analogy of “ἄν κεν” in 13.127. The repetition of “κεν” would be quite unHomeric, and “οὐκέτι” gives a perfectly good sense, viz. ‘it had now come to this, that none could make light,’ as might conceivably have happened before. See 9.164 and note. μετελθών, entering the fight.
