εἰς ἀνίανἔρχεται, tends to it, will issue in it (somewhat as in Her. 1. 120 it is said of dreams, “ἐς ἀσθενὲς ἔρχεται”): τινί, i.e.σοί”: for this menacing “τις”, see on Ant. 751θανοῦσ᾽ ὀλεῖ τινά”.—The traditional accentuation, as seen in L and in the Aldine edition, is ἔρχεται τινί, the ground of it being that “τινί” is here emphatic: so in Categ. 5 § 7 (p. 2 b 2) “τὸ χρῶμα ἐν σώματι: οὐκοῦν καὶ ἐν τινὶ” [not “ἔν τινι”] “σώματι”. (Cp. Chandler, Accent. § 942.) Some recent editors however write “ἔρχεταί τινι”.
