κακὰς πράξεις = “δυσπραξίας”. A solitary instance of the plur. in this sense; as, conversely, Tr. 879 is the only instance of the sing. “πρᾶξις” as=‘mode of doing,’ instead of ‘fortune’ (O. C. 560 n.). In Eur. El. 1305 “κοιναὶ πράξεις, κοινοὶ δὲ πότμοι”, the sense is, ‘actions.’ But the peculiarity here does not warrant a suspicion (see cr. n.). It is equally exceptional, the other way, when “πράσσειν καλῶς” means ‘to act well’ (O. C. 1764 n.). ἐφυμνής. = ἐπαρασαμένη: cp. 658 n.
