εἴ ποθιλεύσσων=“λεύσσων, εἴ ποθι” (=“που”) “λεύσσει”: Ph. 1204ξίφος, εἴ ποθεν”, | “ γένυν, βελέων τι, προπέμψατε”, i.e., “εἴ ποθεν προπέμψαι ἔχετε” (n.).—“ἀπύοι, -υ-”: Ar. Eq. 1023ἐγὼ μέν εἰμ᾽ κύων: πρὸ σοῦ γὰρ ἀπύω”. (Moschus 2. 124 has “ἠπύοντες” with “υ_”: elsewhere the pres. has “υ^”: the fut. and aor. have “υ_”.)

τὸν μακρῶν ἀλάταν πόνων. The similar phrase in Aesch. P. V. 900, “ἀλατείαις πόνων”, implies the constr. “ἀλᾶσθαι πόνους” (as cogn. acc.); and Sophocles may have had that in mind. But the gen. could also be explained as equiv. to an adj. “πολύπονον”: cp. Soph. Ant. 114λευκῆς χιόνος πτέρυγι” (n.).— οὐρίῳ μὴ πελάσαι δρόμῳ, ‘cannot come near him (sc.τῷ Αἴαντι”), with prospered course.’ Others take “δρόμῳ” with “πελάσαι”, ‘attain to, obtain, a prosperous course.’ (Cp. Pind. O. 1. 78κράτει..πέλασον”, ‘bring me to victory.’) Those who read “οὐρίων..δρόμων” (cr. n.) explain it in the same way. But this is surely forced.
