For τε … δέ, instead of “τε...τε”, cp. Tr. 285 “ταῦτα γὰρ πόσις τε σὸς ἐφεῖτ᾽, ἐγὼ δὲ πιστὸς ὢν κείνῳ τελῶ”: ib. 333 “ὡς σύ θ᾽ οἷ θέλεις ι σπεύδῃς, ἐγὼ δὲ τἄνδον ἐξαρκῆ τιθῶ”. See also O. C. 367 n., 442 n.: Ph. 1312 f. Here, δέ is accentless in L, and the first hand has written τ above; but, if the genuine reading had been τε … τε, the change to τε … δέ was not likely to occur; and the antithesis makes δέ very natural. Cp. Aesch. Ag. 206 “βαρεῖα μὲν κὴρ τὸ μὴ πιθέσθαι, ι βαρεῖα δ᾽, εἰ τέκνον δατξω”.
