Διὸςθεὸς: cp. 450: O. C. 623χὡ Διὸς Φοῖβος.

ὀλέθριον should answer metrically to “εὔφρονες” in 420. If it be sound, the first syllable must represent the anacrusis, which is omitted before “εὔφρονες”: and the “ε” is long, as it is in 799 (“ὀλεθρίαν”), O. T. 1341(“ὀλέθριον”), and O. C. 1683(“ὀλεθρία”): though we find “ε^” in Tr. 845(“ὀλεθρίαισι”), and ib. 878 (“ὀλεθρία”). The neatest emendation is οὔλιον (cr. n.).
