δορί. Several editors write “δόρει” here, on account of the v.l.ὡς ἐλοιδόρει”: which may, however, have been originally “γρ. ὡς ἕλοι δόρει”, i.e., merely a marginal note of “δόρει” as an alternative form. Metre requires “δόρει” in O. C. 620, O. C. 1314, O. C. 1386: but there is no reason to doubt that Sophocles could also use the ordinary form “δορί”, as Aesch. ( IIIAesch. Ag.) and Eur. ( Eur. Hec. 5) certainly did.
