In Πανὸς ὀρεσσιβάτα προσπελασθεῖσ᾽, the reading of the MSS., we note （1） the loss after ὀρεσσιβάτα of one syllable, answering to the last of ἀπείρων in 1087: （2） the somewhat weak compound προσπελασθεῖσ᾽: （3） the gen., where, for this sense, the dat. is more usual, as Aesch. PB 896 “μηδὲ πλαθείην γαμετῇ.” L has κοίτῃ written over ὀρεσσιβάτα. I had thought of λέκτροις πελασθεῖσ᾽. But the gen. is quite admissible: and on other grounds Lachmann's πατρὸς πελασθεῖσ᾽ is far better, since πατρὸς, written προς （with line superscribed）, would explain the whole corruption.
