εὖ ἴσθ᾽ Dion. Hal. 1.41 thus quotes a verse from the Προμηθεὺς Λυόμενος of Aesch. （Nauck fr. 193. 2） ἔνθ᾽ οὐ μάχης εὖ οἶδα καὶ θοῦρός περ ὤν, where Strabo p. 183 gives σάφ᾽ οἶδα: and so Pors. here would write σάφ᾽ ἴσθι. But the immediately preceding σαφῶς is decisive against this. Soph. had epic precedent, Hom. Il. 1.385 “εὖ εἰδὼς ἀγόρευε,” etc. Cp. 1071, ἰοὺ ἰού.θανάσιμον βεβηκότα Soph. Aj. 516 “μοῖρα ... ι καθεῖλεν Ἅιδου θανασίμους οἰκήτορας”: Soph. Phil. 424 “θανὼν ... φροῦδος.”
