[263] νῦν δ᾽ “but as it is,” with aor. equivalent to a perf., as Soph. OC 84, 371. Cp. below 948 καὶ νῦν ὅδε πρὸς τῆς τύχης ὄλωλε. So with historic pres., Lys. 12.36εἰ μὲν οὖν ἐν τῷ δικαστηρίῳ ἐκρίνοντο, ῥᾳδίως ἂν ἐσώζοντο: ... νῦν δ᾽ εἰς τὴν βουλὴν εἰσάγουσιν.

ἐνήλατο i.e. he was cut off by a timeless fate, leaving no issue, cp. 1300: Soph. Ant. 1345ἐπὶ κρατί μοι πότμος ... εἰσήλατο”: so the Erinyes say, “μάλα γὰρ οὖν ἁλομένα ἀνέκαθεν βαπυρεσῆ καταφέπω ροδὸς ἀκμάνAesch. Eum. 369, Aesch. Ag. 1175δαίμων ὑπερβαρὴς ἐμπίτνων”: Aesch. Pers. 515 δυσπόνητε δαῖμον, ὡς ἄγαν βαρὺς ποδοῖν ἐνήλλου παντὶ Περσικῷ γένει.” The classical constr. with ἐνάλλομαι, as with ἐνθρώσκω and ἐμπηδάω, is usually the dat., though εἰς with accus. occurs in later Greek; a point urged by Deventer in his objections to this verse, which is, however, clearly sound.
