[511] τῷ “therefore,” as Hom. Il. 1.418 etc.; joined with “νύ,Hom. Il. 7.352 etc.: Plat. Theaet. 179dτῷ τοι, φλἜ Θεόδωρε, μᾶλλον σκεπτέον ἐξ ἀρχῆς.

ἀπ᾽ on the part of: Soph. Trach. 471κἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ κτήσει χάριν.” The hiatus after τῷ is an epic trait, occasionally allowed in tragic lyrics, as in the case of interjections (cp. Soph. Phil. 832 n.). Here the stress on τῷ, and the caesura, both excuse it. Cp. Soph. Aj. 194ἀλλ᾽ ἄνα ἐξ ἑδράνων”: Soph. El. 148 Ἴτυν”: Soph. El. 157οἵα Χρυσόθεμις ζώει καὶ Ἰφιάνασσα” (cp. Hom. Il. 9.145). Neither πρὸς (Elmsley) nor παρ᾽ (Wolff) is desirable.
