καὶ κάρτα: cp. 301: Eur. Hipp. 89 “ΘΕ. ἆρ᾽ ἄν τί μου δέξαιο...; ΙΠ καὶ κάρτα γ̓”. θεοῦ, the hero Colonus. Though the distinction had lost nothing of its clearness at this date (cp. Antiphon or. 1 § 27 “οὔτε θεοὺς οὔθ᾽ ἥρωας οὔτ᾽ ἀνθρώπους δείσασα”), θεός is sometimes the generic term for beings who receive divine honours: so Amphion and Zethus, the Theban heroes, are τὼ σιώ (Aristoph. Ach. 905), and Eupolis says (Ἀστράτευτοι fr. 3) “ἐν εὐσκίοις δρόμοισιν Ἀκαδήμου θεοῦ” (the ἐπώνυμος of the Ἀκαδήμεια).
