The MSS. have πῶς γ᾽ ἄν, but γ᾽ should probably be omitted. In L, at least, there is a perceptible tendency to insert “γ̓, τ̓”, etc., superfluously (cp. cr. n. on 260); and here the first γ᾽ would weaken the second, while πῶς needs no strengthening. In O. T. 1030, where L and most MSS. have “γ̓...γε”, we should read “δ̓...γε”. There is, however, no objection to a doubled “γε” where each of two words in the same sentence is to be emphasised (Her. 1.187).

ἆκον=“ἀκούσιον”: see on 240.
