For the horses of Nestor, which seem to have been as famous for their slowness as those of Diomedes for their speed, see 23.309. ἠπεδανός recurs also in Od. 8.311, Hymn. Ap. 316. The scholiasts are probably right in taking it to be for “ἀ-πεδ-ανος”, the opposite of “ἔμπεδος”, lit. not firm on the feet (“πεδ-” weak form of “ποδ-”). But see Schulze Q. E. p. 148.
