You will also find it more than once in the Iliad.

Ron said: "Brian, I would argue that it cannot refer to animals as the term 
BROTOPOUS refers to a horse with human feet, thus contrasting human and 
animal."

Thanks Ron. But since it is a different word, it seems to be less than 
conclusive, no? I do note though, that BROTOS is used in Ez. Trag. 137 with 
the meaning mortal (people).

God bless,
