ἄνακτες: cp. 843, 940.—“δύ᾽ ἐξ ἑνὸς βλ.”, two seeing by the agency of one (“ἐκ” as in 973): cp. O. C. 33τῆς ὑπέρ τ᾽ ἐμοῦ αὑτῆς θ᾽ ὁρώσης”. The words would usu. mean, ‘two seeing, where only one saw formerly.’ Cp. O. C. 1764, where the regular sense of “πράσσειν καλῶς”, ‘to fare well,’ has not hindered the poet from using it as=‘to do rightly.’
