ἀφέρπειν=imperat. (481). ἄστροφος: so in Aesch. Cho. 98 Electra debates whether, after pouring her mother's offering at Agamemnon's grave, she shall turn away,— “καθάρμαθ᾽ ὥς τις ἐκπέμψας, πάλιν
δικοῦσα τεῦχος, ἀστρόφοισιν ὄμμασιν
”. In Theoc. 24. 92 Teiresias directs that the ashes of the serpents which would have strangled the infant Heracles shall be cast beyond the borders by one of Alcmena's handmaids: “ἂψ δὲ νέεσθαι ι ἄστρεπτος”.
Ov. Fasti 6. 164 “Quique sacris adsunt respicere illa vetat.”
