The choral ode has closed with an allusion to the unknown man (ὅς: cp. 248 “τίς ἀνδρῶν”, 319 “ὁ δρῶν”). At this moment Antigone is led in by the Guard.— ἀμφινοῶ: cp. O. C. 316 (where Antigone can scarcely believe her eyes, on seeing Ismene,) “ἆρ᾽ ἔστιν; ἆρ᾽ οὐκ ἔστιν; ἢ γνώμη πλανᾷ”; For ἐς, cp. “φοβεῖσθαι εἴς τι”, O. T. 980 n. δαιμόνιον τέρας, a portent sent by gods,—so astounding as to require a supernatural cause. Xen. Mem. 1.3.5 “εἰ μή τι δαιμόνιον εἴη”.
