τὸ καίρια, the reading of Suidas, is supported by such passages as Aesch. PV 927ὅσον τό τ᾽ ἄρχειν καὶ τὸ δουλεύειν δίχα”: Eur. Alc. 528χωρὶς τό τ᾽ εἶναι καὶ τὸ μὴ νομίζεται”. In Philemon Σικελικός fr. 1. 7ἕτερον 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. 228φρονοῦντι 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. 469χωρὶς τὰ Μυσῶν καὶ Φρυγῶν ὁρίσματα”.
