γένοιτοκ.τ.λ.”: cp. Her. 5. 9γένοιτο δ᾽ ἂν πᾶν ἐν τῷ μακρῷ χρόνῳ.

μέντἂν, a crasis frequent in Attic prose ( Dem. or. 1 § 26, Plat. Rep.p. 375 D, etc.). Here “μέντοι” expresses reflective assent (‘well, certainly’), as so often in Plato (e.g., Plat. Soph.p. 245 B “ἀληθέστατα μέντοι λέγεις”).

θεοῦ, not “θεᾶς”,—the generalising masc.: Aesch. Eum. 297(ref. to Athena), “ἔλθοι: κλύει δὲ καὶ πρόσωθεν ὢι θεός”. So Soph. Ant. 463(“ὅστις”), Soph. Tr. 151(“αὑτοῦ”), Soph. El. 145(“ὃς”), Soph. El. 771(“πάσχοντι”), Soph. El. 1026(“ἐγχειροῦντα”), Soph. El. 1105(“τὸν ἄγχιστον”).
