[890] τῶν ἀσέπτων see on 864.

ἔρξεται keep himself from: Soph. OC 836εἴργου,” “stand back”: Hdt. 7.197ὡς κατὰ τὸ ἄλσος ἐγένετο, αὐτός τε ἔργετο αὐτοῦ καὶ τῇ στρατιῇ πάσῃ παρήγγειλε.Plat. Laws 838aὡς εὖ τε καὶ ἀκριβῶς εἴργονται τῆς τῶν καλῶν ξυνουσίας.” As to the form, Herodotus has ἔργω or ἐέργω: in Attic the MSS. give Aesch. Eum. 566κατεργαθοῦ”: Soph. Aj. 593ξυνέρξετε”: Thuc. 5.2περιέρξαντες” (so the best MSS., and Classen): Plat. Gorg. 461dκαθέρξῃς” (so Stallb. and Herm., with MSS.): Plat. Rep. 461bξυνέρξαντος”: Plat. Stat. 285bἕρξας.” So far as the MSS. warrant a conclusion, Attic seems to have admitted ἐρ- instead of εἰρ- in the forms with ξ. The smooth breathing is right here, even if we admit a normal distinction between εἴργω “to shut out” and εἵργω “to shut in.”
