τίς ἂν ηὑρέθη, ‘who could have been found?’ the potential aor. indic. with “ἄν”: cp. Ant. 502“πόθεν κλέος γ᾽ ἂν εὐκλεέστερον ι κατέσχον”...; Dem. or. 37 § 57 “πῶς ἂν..ἐγώ τί σε ἠδίκησα;” προνούστερος. The Homeric Ajax, though not subtle in thought or speech, has robust good sense: as Hector says ( Il. 7. 288), “Αἶαν, ἐπεί τοι δῶκε θεὸς μέγεθός τε βίην τε ι καὶ πινυτήν.” δρᾶν … τὰ καίρια: cp. Shakesp. All's Well 1. 2. 26 “He did look far | Into the service of the time, and was | Discipled of the bravest.”
