With Erfurdt I think that ταρβῶν is right; not that ταρβῶ could not stand, but Greek idiom distinctly favours the participle. Soph. Ant. 403 “ΚΡ. ἦ καὶ ξυνίης καὶ λέγεις ὀρθῶς ἃ φής; ΦΥ. ταύτην γ᾽ ἰδὼν θάπτουσαν.” Soph. Ant. 517 “ΑΝ. ... ἀδελφὸς ὤλετο. ΚΡ. πορθῶν γε τήνδε γῆν.” Plat. Sym. 164e “εἶπον οὖν ὅτι ... ἥκοιμι. —καλῶς” （v. l. καλῶς γ᾽）, ἔφη, ποιῶν. Cp. 1130 ξυναλλάξας. —ἐξέλθῃ; cp. 1182 ἐξήκοι σαφῆ, come true.
