μοῦνος, as 991, 1250: cp. O. T. 1418 n.

βραδύς (cp. 306) seems more fitting here than βαρύς, which has no MS. warrant except L's superscript variant “γηρῶν” (sic) “βαρύς”,—perh. a corruption of “γήρᾳ βαρύς”. In O. T. 17σὺν γήρᾳ βαρεῖς”=weighed down with age, while in Ai. 1017ἐν γήρᾳ βαρύς”=peevish in old age. The conjecture βραχύς was intended to mean "weak" (880).
