Only the first two uses are Homeric. In Hom. αὐτός denotes the principal person or thing, in opposition to what is subordinate, and is intensive by contrast: αὐτὸν καὶ θεράποντα the man himself and his attendant Z 18 (cp. σώσα_σ' αὐτὸν καὶ παῖδας P. G. 511e and see cross1208 d). On αὐτός as a reflexive, see cross1228 a; on αὐτός emphatic with other pronouns, see cross1233 ff.
