[361] οὐχ ὥστε γ᾽ κ.τ.λ. οὐξυνῆκαοὕτω γ᾽ ἀκριβῶς ὥστε εἰπεῖν: cp. 1131. γνωστόν: “known.” So the MSS.: but γνωτὰ 58, γνωτὸν 396. In fr. 262 ἐκ κάρτα βαιῶν γνωτὸς ἂν γένοιτ᾽ ἀνήρ, γνωτός= “well-known,” γνώριμος: but Soph. used γνωστός in the same sense in the Hermione (Antiatticista 87.25). It has been held that, where a sigmatic form of the verbal (as γνωστός) existed along with the non-sigmatic (as γνωτός), Attic usage distinguished γνωστός as = “what can be known” from γνωτός as = “what is known.” But there is no ground for assuming that such a distinction was observed. See Appendix, n. on v. 361.
