τὸ καίρια, the reading of Suidas, is supported by such passages as Aesch. PV 927 “ὅσον τό τ᾽ ἄρχειν καὶ τὸ δουλεύειν δίχα”: Eur. Alc. 528 “χωρὶς τό τ᾽ εἶναι καὶ τὸ μὴ νομίζεται”. In Philemon Σικελικός fr. 1. 7 “ἕτερον τό τ᾽ ἀλγεῖν καὶ τὸ θεωρεῖν ἔστ᾽ ἴσως”, the second “τὸ” is doubtful. But for “τὰ καίρια”, the reading of the MSS., it may be urged that the phrase is “τὰ καίρια” (“λέγειν, δρᾶν” etc.) in Aesch. Th. 1, 619, Suppl. 446, Ch. 582, Eur. I. A. 829, Soph. Ai. 120, while El. 228 “φρονοῦντι καίρια” (without art.) is isolated. If τὰ is retained, the ellipse of “τὸ” is illustrated by 606, where see n.: and add trag. incert. fr. 469 “χωρὶς τὰ Μυσῶν καὶ Φρυγῶν ὁρίσματα”.
