For δ᾽ οὖν cp. 688, 722.

τὼτώδε: cp. 561 (“τώ”), O. T. 1472 (“τοῖν”), O. C. 1600 (“τώ”), El. 977 (“τώδε τώ”)—all fem.—Attic inscriptions of c. 450— 320 B.C. present numerous instances of fem. dual “τώ, τοῖν, τούτοιν, οἶν”, but no instance of fem. dual “τά, ταῖν, ταύταιν”, or “αἷν”. (Meisterhans p. 50.) Hitherto the gen. and dat. “ταῖν, ταῖνδε, ταύταιν” have been retained even by those edd. who give “τώ, τώδε”, etc. (cp. O. T. 1462, 1504: O. C. 445, 859, 1149, 1290, etc.). But, so far as epigraphic evidence goes, the distinction is arbitrary.

καί with the whole phrase κατακτ. νοεῖς rather than with κατακτ. alone (for no minor penalty is in view): cp. 726.
