It gives the ι subscript here, in 623, 1457; Soph. OC 611; Soph. Ant. 547, 761; Soph. El. 1022. It omits the ι subscript in Soph. El. 63, 113, 540, 1486; Soph. Trach. 707, 708; Soph. Phil. 1085. Cp. Etym. M. 482, 29, θνῄσκω, μιμνῃσκω. Δίδυμος [circ. 30 B.C.] χωρὶς τοῦ ι_ ... μέντοι παράδοσις ἔχει τὸ ι. — φόβῳ φυγὼν, “having fled in fear”: φόβῳ, modal dative; cp.
