καλῶς with πράσσοντα (not with “ἕξειν”), “"in a seemly manner,"” “"duly"” (Lat. rite): cp. 617: O. T. 879 “τὸ καλῶς δ᾽ ἔχον ι πόλει πάλαισμα”. The fact that πράσσοντα καλῶς usually meant “"faring well"” is no objection. The ancient Greek instinct for words was remarkably free from bondage to phrases. Cp. Ant. 989 n. ἄλυπον: an echo of the expression used by Oed. (1519). Why change it to ἀδῇον (1533, Nauck), or ἄσυλον (Wecklein)?
