[892] τίς ἔτι ποτ᾽ ... ἀμύνειν; Amid such things (if such deeds prevail), who shall any longer vaunt that he wards off from his life the shafts of the gods? The pres. ἀμύνειν, not fut. ἀμυ^νεῖν, because the shafts are imagined as already assailing him. ἐν τοῖσδ᾽:1319: Soph. Ant. 38εἰ τάδ᾽ ἐν τούτοις.
