οἶος, the reading of the MSS., is far better here than “οἷος.” ἄφρακτος. Dindorf writes “ἄφαρκτος”, as the older Attic form. Attic inscriptions attest “φάρξαι” (420 B.C.) and “διαφάρξαντι” (409 B.C.): though “διαφράξαι” occurs as early as 347 B.C.; Meisterhans, Gramm. Att. Inschr. § 43. No instance of “ἄφαρκτος” is quoted from an Attic inscr., but “ἄφρακτος” occurs c. 290 B.C., and often later. For the gen. φίλων, cp. 321: El. 36“ἄσκευον..στρατοῦ”.
