ἔρωτ᾽ ἐς τόνδ̓, the conjecture of Papageorgius (see cr. n.), is, I think, almost certain. The MS. change supposed is of the slightest kind, and such as continually occurs in our MSS.: while ἔρωτος τοῦδ̓ cannot be defended as either (a) gen. of connection, "helping in regard to this desire," or (b) possessive gen. with ὠφελῶν as=“εὐεργέτης”, "helper of this desire." See Appendix.
