The MS. “ποῖ δῆτ̓...ἕξω” has been defended in two ways, neither of which is satisfactory: (1) by an ellipse of “μολοῦσα”: (2) as=“"until when?"” As in 383 (n.) we should read “ὅπου” for “ὅποι”, and in 335 (n.) “ποῦ” for “ποῖ”, so here I feel sure that ποῦ is right. It suits the sense better than the v.l. πῇ, besides being closer to the MSS. The v.l. ἄξω, (which would justify ποῖ,) is plainly a mere corruption of “ἕξω”. αὖθις, lit., “"now again,"” i.e. after this new turn in our unhappy fortunes.
