σώσας … ἐχθρῶν: the gen. as after “λύω, ἐλευθερόω”: Ph. 919“σῶσαι κακοῦ”: Eur. Or. 779 “σωθῆναι κακῶν”.— The regular constr. would have been “ἦν ζηλωτός, σώσας μὲν χθόνα, λαβὼν δὲ μοναρχίαν”. For δέ, τε has been substituted, as in Tr. 1012 “πολλὰ μὲν ἐν πόντῳ κατά τε δρία πάντα καθαίρων”: Ph. 1056“πάρεστι μὲν ι Τεῦκρος,... ι ἐγώ θ᾽”: ib. 1136 “ὁρῶν μὲν αἰσχρὰς ἀπάτας, ι στυγνόν τε φῶτ᾽”. Then in the second clause, λαβών τε, a new finite verb, ηὔθυνε, has been inserted, with the result that “λαβών” now begins a new sentence. Cp. 815 “ὕμνησεν”, n.— παντελῆ, complete; Plat. Legg. 698A “ἡ παντελὴς...ἐλευθερία”: cp. 737 n. ηὔθυνε: cp. 178: O. T. 104 “ἀπευθύνειν πόλιν”. The temporal augment for verbs beginning with “ευ” is attested by Attic inscrr. of c. 403—321 B.C. (Meisterhans, p. 78). εὐγενεῖ, not “εὐγενῶν”: 793 n.
