νῦν δ᾽ αὖ. Though in L δ᾽ has been inserted by a later hand, it is found in A, and its omission by the first hand in L (which has made other such oversights) cannot weigh much against it. Some of the recent edd. omit it: but the effect of νῦν αὖ without it would here be intolerably abrupt. For αὖ (‘in our turn’) cp. 7. μόνα δή, ‘all alone’: Tr. 1063 “μόνη με δὴ καθεῖλε”: Ai. 992 “ἁπάντων δή”: so esp. with superlatives, ib. 858 “πανύστατον δή”: Thuc. 1.50 “μεγίστη δή”.
