ἀλλ᾽ ὅστις ὁ τόπος. The tribrach is divided like that in Eur. Phoen. 511 “ἐλθόντͅα^ συ^ν ο^πλͅοις”, where σὺν coheres closely with ὅπλοις, as ὁ with τόπος. But even where no such cohesion exists, a tribrach may be broken after the second syllable if it is also broken after the first: e.g. “δέσποινα, σὺ τάδ᾽ ἔπραξας οὐ γνώμης ἄτερ” is correct: cp. n. on O. T. 537. ἦ μάθω, deliberative subjunct., of which the aor. is more frequent than the pres.: so O. T. 364 “εἴπω”: see on O. T. 651.
