ἀλλ᾽ ἀντακούσει τοῦτον ὡςκ.τ.λ.”: cp. Phil. 549ἤκουσα τοὺς ναύτας ὅτι ... εἷεν” etc.: Xen. Mem. 4. 2. 33τὸν Δαίδαλον..οὐκ ἀκήκοας, ὅτι..ἠναγκάζετο.. δουλεύειν;” Wecklein's conjecture, τοῦθ᾽ ἕν for “τοῦτον”, is very plausible, in view of 1040 “ἕν σοι φράσω”. We may observe, however, that “τοῦτον” answers to “τόνδ̓” in 1040, and that the stress in Teucer's retort falls on the “ἀντ-” in “ἀντακούσει”, and on “τεθάψεται”. There is more of dignity in that retort, as it stands with “τοῦτον”, than there would be with the mocking echo, “τοῦθ᾽ ἕν”. If “τοῦθ᾽ ἕν” were to be read, then “σὺ δ̓ ἀντακούσει” (a v.l.) would be preferable to L's “ἀλλ̓ ἀντακούσει.

τεθάψεται: 577 n.
