[1216] ἰὼ Λαΐειον τέκνον Erfurdt's is the most probable way of supplying the required syllable, and Reisig's objection to its place is answered by Soph. Aj. 395ἔρεβος φαεννότατον.” Hermann, however, preferred , as a separate exclamation: “Alas, of Laius (oh horror!) the son. ” Bothe's Λαϊήιον could be supported by Eur. IA 757Φοιβήιον δάπεδον”: Eur. fr. 775. 64 ὁσίαν βασιλήιον: but seems less likely here.
