τί δῆτ᾽ ἂνἐπεντέλλοις = τί δῆτ᾽ ἂν εἴη... ἐπεντέλλεις; cp. O. C. 647μέγ᾽ ἂν λέγοις δώρημα”: Ph. 26.

The reading ἄλλῳ is a bad one, for the contrast is between commands, not persons; and an awkward ambiguity would arise, since τοῦτο might then seem to mean the watching of the corpse.

ἐπιχωρεῖν, accedere, to join their side: Thuc. 4.107δεξάμενος τοὺς ἐθελήσαντας ἐπιχωρῆσαι... κατὰ τὰς σπονδάς”. Mirab. 133 “τούτῳ τῷ ἐπιγράμματι ἐπεχώρησε καὶ τόπος ἐκεῖνος” (corroborated it).

ἀπιστοῦσιν = ἀπειθοῦσιν: 381, 656.

τάδε, cogn. acc.: cp. 66.
