[1109] συμπαίζει Anacreon fr. 2 (Bergk p. 775) to Dionysus: ὦναξ, δαμάλης (subduing) Ἔρως καὶ Νύμφαι κυανώπιδες πορφυρέη τ᾽ Ἀφροδίτη συμπαίζουσιν: ἐπιστρέφεαι δ᾽ ὑψηλῶν κορυφὰς ὀρέων. Ἑλικωνίδων is Porson's correction of Ἑλικωνιάδων (MSS.), ad Eur. Orest. 614. Since αἶς answers to δέ in 1097, Nauck conjectured Ἑλικῶνος αἶσι. But this is unnecessary, as the metrical place allows this syllable to be either short or long: so in Soph. El. 486αἰσχίσταις” answers to 502 νυκτὸς εὖ.
