A gain, as so often in xvii and xviii, echo o f phrase or of narrative m otif links the two books: at xviii 74 the suitors w ill marvel that the old m an has such a powerful thigh (οΐην . . έπιγουνίδα) w hen he pulls back his ragged clothing, girding for the fight with Irus. 231 - 2 . A lthough accurately characterized b y M on ro as ‘a piece of exaggera­ tion or inversion o f the natural statement, suited to the rough hum our of the speech’ , these verses have seem ed to critics (beginning with the scholia) as awkward or strained, for two reasons: (1) it seems inconsistent for stools to be sim ultaneously around the head and hitting the nbs\ (2) the ribs are said to w ear out the stools, whereas the naturalistic truth w ould have the stools w earing out the ribs.

In support of φλίφεται I note that it is the form recorded in A pollonius the Sophist’ s Lexicon Homencum, and that it adds m ore alliterative force to M elanthius’ abusive outburst. — άορας 222, έρίφοισι φορήναι 224> βούλεται αίτίζων βόσκειν 228), and seems part of H om er’ s careful, consistent delineation of this m inor character. See further com m ent on M elanthius’ rhetoric in the note to 231-2. For more detail on the linguistic peculiarities of M elanthius’ speech, see Shipp loc. cit. 225 .

Although all the MSS read 7 7 v, it is quite possible that H om er originally said eev, a com m on form elsewhere, w hich here w ould have the virtue o f avoiding a spondee in the fifth foot. 212 . Enter M elanthius the palace goatherd, the one m ale servant who has allied him self with the suitors. ) is the b ad counterpart o f the faithful Eurycleia. H ere as elsewhere, the Odyssey shows a certain curious taste for doublets and opposing pairs. T o the doublet M elanthius/M elantho add Circe/Calypso, D em odocus/Phem ius, Cyclopes/Laestrygonians, A ntinous/Eurym achus, E urycleia/Eurynom e, M entes/M entor; and perhaps the pairing of 27 COMMENTARY Phem ius and M edon as two professionals (^ημιοεργοί, see note on 383) w ho served the suitors but were not disloyal, are accordingly spared at xxii 330-80, and are still treated as a duo at xxiv 439.
