τι τάχιστ᾽. This (Erfurdt's) emendation seems the simplest and best cure for the metre (see cr. n.). It is worth noticing that Soph. has this phrase in a closely similar passage, O. T. 1340ἀπάγετ᾽ ἐκτόπιον τι τάχιστά με”. He has “ὅσον τάχος” thrice, and “ὡς τάχος” eight times, but “ τι τάχος” nowhere else.
