γάρ in assent （ “you are right, for,” etc.）, 731: Soph. Phil. 756: Soph. Ant. 639, etc. —Λαΐου γὰρ ἦν ... νομεὺς: a comma at ἦν is admissible （cp. 1122）, but would not strictly represent the construction here, in which the idea —Λαΐου ἦν πιστὸς νομεύς, εἴπερ τις ἄλλος —has been modified by the restrictive ὡς before νομεύς.ὡς only means that the sense in which a νομεύς can show πίστις is narrowly limited by the sphere of his work. See on 763: cp. 1078.
