This paper scrutinizes a textually controverted passage of the Pindaric corpus. Previous attempts to solve the problem are reviewed and their shortcomings pointed out. The interpunction of Rose (1939) is adopted, yet with a minor conjecture (ἔχει〈ς〉) and a new interpretation of the metaphor ὀφΘαλμός. Beyond the textual improvement my aim is to contribute to the understanding of this very motif of intriguing complexity: the eye of the king.
