ζώσας is not “successful,” but “operative,” —effectual for the purpose of the βουλεύματα: as v. 482 ζῶντα is said of the oracles which remain operative against the guilty, and Soph. Ant. 457 “ζῇ ταῦτα” of laws which are ever in force. Conversely λόγοι θνῄσκοντες μάτην （Aesch. Lib. 845） are threats which come to nothing. The scholium in L gives the sense correctly:— ἐν τοῖς συνετοῖς τὰς συντυχίας καὶ τὰς ἀποβάσεις τῶν βουλευμάτων ὁρῶ ζώσας καὶ οὐκ ἀπολλυμένας. See Appendix.
