αἰὲν νυχίου, G. Wolff's excellent emendation of “ἐννυχίου”, brings the verse into metrical agreement with 1199 “ἐκεῖνος οὔτε στεφάνων” (n.). The corruption could easily arise from “ἐννυχίαν” above (1203). Keeping “ἐννυχίου”, Dindorf inserts “ἐξ” before it; but this remedy (though better than the Triclinian “οὖν”) gives an unusual constr. to προβολὰ, which regularly takes a simple genitive,—either of the thing defended (as “χώρας”, M. 3. 5. 27), or of the thing which is warded off, as Eur. Or. 1488“θανάτου προβολάν”: Plat. Tim. 74B “προβολὴ..καυμάτων.— θούριος”, as in 212.
