[85] Τυδεΐδην: by ‘anticipation,’ as the obj. of “γνοίης”, instead of “Τυδεΐδης” as subj. of “μετείη”. H. 878. cf. “ᾔδεε ἀδελφεὸν ὡς ἐπονεῖτο Β” 409 “he knew how busy his brother was,” ‘I know thee who thou art,’ St. Luke iv. 34.

γνοίης: potential of the past. cf. 4.223. “You would not have known.”

ποτέροισι: with which of the two. This is explained by the following verse. Diomed was as near the Trojan line as to his own friends.

μετείη: opt. of indirect discourse, for “μέτεστι”.
