[666] τὰ δ᾽σφῷν and, on the other hand, if the ills arising from you two are to be added to the former ills. Prof. Kennedy gives τὰ δ᾽, rightly, I think: for γᾶ φθίνουσα refers to the blight and plague (25): τάδ᾽ would obscure the contrast between those troubles and the new trouble of the quarrel.

προσάψει intrans., as perh. only here and in fr. 348 καί μοι τρίτον ῥίπτοντι ... ἀγχοῦ προσῆψεν, “he came near to me.” Eur. Hipp. 188τὸ μέν ἐστιν ἁπλοῦν: τῷ δὲ συνάπτει λύπη τε φρενῶν χερσίν τε πόνος,” “is joined.” It is possible, but harsh, to make προσαψει act. with γῆ as subject. Since in 695 ἀλύουσαν κατ᾽ ὀρθὸν οὐρίσας is clearly sound, Herm. rightly struck out καὶ before τὰ δ᾽ here. See on 696.
