As most editors since Elmsley have allowed, the MS. οὔ τι ... οὔτε cannot be right. And οὔ τι ... οὐδέ is clearly more forcible than οὔτε ... οὔτε.

λάχωσι: this verb with gen. is less common than with accus., but is well attested not only in poetry but in prose, as Plat. Legg. 775Eτιμῆς ἐὰν τῆς προσηκούσης...λαγχάνῃ(Krüger 1. 47. 14). It is surely needless, then, to adopt Brunck's τύχωσι.

τοῦδε, very rare for τοῦδ᾽ ἀνδρός as =ἐμοῦ: so “τῆσδε” = “ἐμοῦTr. 305, “τῷδε” =“ἐμοίib. 1012.

συμμάχου predicate; cp. 1482ἐναισίου δὲ σοῦ τύχοιμι”, and 1486.
