ἀκμαἶ ἂνμόλοι seems the best correction of ἀκμαῖοςμόλοι. The phrase “ἀκμαῖα μολεῖν” is quite permissible in poetry: see the examples quoted on 196 f., and add Soph. Ph. 310μόλις φανεὶς ἄελπτα κἀδόκητα ματρὸς ὠλέναις.

ἀκμαῖος, εἰ βαίη, μόλοι is impossible: “μόλοι” could not stand here for “μόλοι ἄν”: see on Ant. 605(“κατάσχοι”).
