οὔτοιοὐδ̓. There can be little doubt that the “οὔθ̓” of the MSS. should be “οὐδ̓” here. In El. 1197 and 1412 L has “οὔθ̓”, where “οὐδ̓” is right; as in O. C. 496μήθ̓” instead of “μηδ̓”. As to the conditions under which οὐοὔτε was admitted in Attic poetry, see on Tr. 1058 f.

ὅπως ἐῶ (subjunct.), the indirect form of the ‘deliberative’ “πῶς ἐῶ;” (‘how am I to allow..?’) Cp. O. T. 1367οὐκ οἶδ᾽ ὅπως σε φῶ βεβουλεῦσθαι καλῶς”: Dem. or. 9 § 54οὐκ ἔχω τί λέγω”.
