[1] Attested only here; form and meaning unexplained.
[2] cf. ἐπιωγή (epsilon 2502), ἰωγή (iota 473), both glossed with σκέπη "covering, protection." The Supplement to LSJ registers ὑπιωγή as "place of refuge," citing Hesychius (i.e. his upsilon555, where the plural is glossed with the phrase ὑπαγωγαί, ὑποδρομαὶ τῆς πέτρας διὰ σκέπην "burrows under a rock for shelter"). The word also occurs twice in Apollonius' Homeric Lexicon.
