φωτὸς ἠπατημένη, deceived by him: schol. “καταφρονήσας ἠπάτησέ με”. Cp. Eur. Or. 497πληγεὶς θυγατρός”. Others understand, ‘deceived concerning (or in) him’: but the genitive will hardly yield that sense.—She refers esp. to his words in 684—692.

χάριτος: cp. 212 (“στέρξας ἀνέχει”), and her words in 520 ff.— ἐκβεβλημένη: for the assonance (after “ἠπατημένη”) with the end of the last v., cp. 1085 f.: Ph. 121 f.: Tr. 1265 f.
