κἀπ᾽ ἐκείνᾳἔσχον = καὶ ἐκείνῃ ἔπεσχον, from the intrans. “ἐπέχω” as=‘to direct (one's course) against a person,’ ‘to attack him’: cp. Od. 19.71τί μοι ὦδ᾽ ἐπέχεις κεκοτηότι θυμῷ”; (‘assail me’): ib. 22. 75ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ πάντες ἔχωμεν” (‘let us all have at him’).—Others understand, ‘extended even to her,’ ‘reached her,’ which mars the personification.—μακραίωνες: Aesch. Eum. 172παλαιγενεῖς... Μοίρας”.
