ἀποβλαφθεῖσαν … φίλου: bereft of him: properly, arrested by a hand which separates her from him ( El. 696“ὅταν δέ τις θεῶν ι βλάπτῃ, δύναιτ᾽ ἂν οὐδ᾽ ἂν ἰσχύων φυγεῖν”). For the gen. (not found elsewhere with “ἀποβλάπτω”), cp. Aesch. Ag. 120“βλαβέντα λοισθίων δρόμων”: Tyrtaeus fr. 12. 39 “οὐδέ τις αὐτὸν ι βλάπτειν οὔτ᾽ αἰδοῦς οὔτε δίκης ἐθέλει”. ἀρτίως. The schol. read ἀρτίου, which he explains by “γνησίου”: and this reading was approved by Bergk in Rhein. Mus. (1847) p. 150, though in his text (1858) he kept “ἀρτίως”. Hartung gives “ἀρτίου”, explaining it of close, congenial friendship ( Ant. 570“οὐχ ὥς γ᾽ ἐκείνῳ τῇδέ τ᾽ ἦν ἡρμοσμένα”). But “ἀρτίως”, though somewhat tame, is clearly genuine.
