καλῶς φέροιντ᾽ ἄν, ‘have a prosperous course.’ Thuc. 5. 16§ I “εὖ φερόμενος ἐν στρατηγίαις”: Xen. Oecon. 5. 17εὖ..φερομένης τῆς γεωργίας”.

ἔνθα μὴ with subjunct. (without “ἄν”), as in O. T. 316ἔνθα μὴ τέλη λύῃ. καθεστήκῃ”, which L supports, seems slightly better here than “καθεστήκοι”, which would make the statement more abstract or hypothetical. Similarly in 1081 we have “ὅπου..παρῇ”. (On the other hand, in such a passage as Tr. 1235, “τίς ταῦτ᾽ ἄν, ὅστις μὴ ᾿ξ ἀλαστόρων νοσοῖ”, | “ἕλοιτο;” the optative is clearly better than “νοσῇ”.)
