This throwing of the blame upon the “ἄτη” of Zeus is a favourite resource of Agamemnon; see 19.91, etc. ἄασας, like all other forms of the verb except the isolated “ἀᾶται” 19.91, 129, is best referred to *“ἀϝάζω”, aor. “ἄασα” having an augmented form with “α_α^-” and an unaugmented with “α^α^-”, and, like other verbs of this class, a by-form “ἄασσαν” Od. 10.68 , “ἀάσσατο” 9.537, though MSS. and edd. mostly write the “ς” single. Of course in a book like the present there can be no great objection to the late contracted “ἆσας” (cf. 19.95, Od. 11.61).
