[214] ἀγλαῶπι A cretic has been lost. G. Wolff's σύμμαχον is simple and appropriate. Arndt's conjecture, δαΐᾳ (“destroying, consuming,” prob. from rt. δαϝ, to kindle, Curt. Etym. sect. 258), is supported by the possibility of a corruption ΔΑΙΔΙ having been rejected as a gloss on πεύκᾳ. Cp. Hom. Il. 9.347δήϊον πῦρ,Aesch. Seven 222πυρὶ δαΐῳ.” But in connection with the “blithe torch” of Dionysus such an epithet is unsuitable.
