Hermann's μέλλετον (for the MS. μέλλετ̓) is fitting, since Oed. and Ant. have just been speaking together; and is clearly better than μέλλετέ γ̓ (Triclinius) or μέλλομεν (suggested by Elms.). The sing. τάχυνε rightly follows, since it is from Oed. alone that a reply is sought. μακρὰ, neut. plur. as adv.: O. T. 883 “ὑπέροπτα” (n.): Aristoph. Lys. 550 “οὔρια θεῖτε”: Eur. Or. 152 “χρόνια...πεσὼν...εὐνάζεται”.
