ἄτας ὕπερ “on account of ruin” （i.e. “to avert it”）: cp. Soph. Ant. 932 “κλαύμαθ᾽ ὑπάρξει βραδυτῆτος ὕπερ.” So Aesch. Seven 111 “ἴδετε παρθένων ἱκέσιον λόχον δουλοσύνας ὕπερ,” “to avert slavery.” Cp. 187. ὀρνυμένας πόλει: the dat. （poet.） as after verbs of attacking, e.g. ἐπιέναι, ἐπιτίθεσθαι. Musgrave's conj. ὑπερορνυμένας πόλει （the compound nowhere occurs） has been adopted by some editors.
