τί δ᾽ ἄλγος κ.τ.λ. And in what sense wast thou my σωτήρ̣ The ἐν κακοῖς of the later MSS. is intolerably weak: “what pain was I suffering when you found me in trouble?” The ἐν καιροῖς of L （found also, with the addition of με, in one later MS., Pal.） seems most unlikely to have been a corruption of ἐν κακοῖς. Among the conjectures, ἀγκάλαις με （Kock）, or, better, ἀγκάλαισι, is perh. most probable; being slightly nearer the letters than Verrall's ingenious ἴσχον τἀγκάλισμα. （For the dat. ἀγκάλαις without ἐν, cp. Eur. IT 289, etc.） Such conjectures as ἐν δέοντι （Wecklein）, ἐν καλῷ （Wunder）, presuppose that ἐν καιροῖς was a gloss: but it is more probable that it was a corruption.
