μέλας δ᾽ elision at end of v. is peculiar in Trag. to Soph., who is said to have adopted it from a poet Callias （Athen. 10 p. 453 E）: hence it was called εἶδος Σοφόκλειον. Examples: δ᾽ 785, 791, 1224; Soph. OC 17; Soph. Ant. 1031; Soph. El. 1017: τ᾽ below, 1184: ταῦτ᾽ 332. [In Soph. OC 1164 “μολόντ᾽” should prob. be μόνον.] In Comedy: “δ᾽” Eur. Hipp. 1716, Aristoph. Eccl. 351: “μ᾽” Aristoph. Frogs 298.
