fail: Polyb. 2. 14 ἡ τῶν Ἄλπεων παρώρεια ... προκαταλήγουσα λείπει τοῦ μὴ συνάπτειν αὐτῷ, the chain of the Alps, stopping short, fails of touching （the inmost recess of the Adriatic）.
because of οὐδὲ
: the added τὸ
makes the idea of the infin. stand out more independently of λείπει
: cp. 283.-ᾔδειμεν,
which the MSS. give, should be kept. It was altered to ᾔδεμεν
by Elms. on Eur. Ba. 1345
“ὄψ᾽ ἐμάθεθ᾽ ἡμᾶς, ὅτε δ᾽ ἐχρῆν, οὐκ ᾔδετε
”: where the εἴδετε
of the MSS. is possible, but less probable. Aeschin. 3.82
: Dem. 55.9
” See Curtius Verb 11.239
, Eng. tr. 432, who points out that the case of the third
pers. plur. is different: for this, the forms in εσαν
（as ᾔδεσαν） alone
have good authority.
