[Fright] and Fear and Din of War,[1] attendants of Ares, sons of war; they too experienced what Ares did, after Hephaestus had not been frightened by them.
Greek Original:
Deimos kai phobos kai Kudoimos, hupêretai tou Areôs, huioi tou polemou: hoi kai autoi sumpeponthasi tôi Arei, tou Hêphaistou autous mê phobêthentos.
From a scholium to Gregory of Nazianzus, Oration 5 in PG 35.705a. The allusion is presumably to the episode in Homer, Odyssey 8, where Hephaestus takes his revenge for being cuckolded by Ares and Aphrodite.
[1] For Din of War, Kydoimos, see again kappa 2622.
