Are they reliable as copies or have you found many errors in their texts?

Aoidoi.org: Ibycus 286

This is remarkable little poem. At 12 lines, I think it's a good candidate for memorizing.

Iliad 2:35

I can't figure out what au)tou= means in to\n d' e)/lip' au)tou=
First I thought it was genitive because of the verb, took leave of him, but then to/n is left out so I decided against that.

Old friend re-revisited
