ἄγαν ὑπερβριθὲςκ.τ.λ.” The defect of a syllable in the MSS. here (see 905 n.) is best supplied by γὰρ, which expresses assent: cp. Ph. 755ΝΕ. δεινόν γε τοὐπίσαγμα τοῦ νοσήματος”. | “ΦΙ. δεινὸν γὰρ οὐδὲ ῥητόν”. The addition of γ̓ after ἄγαν in some MSS. seems to have been prompted by a sense that some such link with the preceding verse was required.— ἄχθος, of sorrow, as Ph. 1168μυρίον ἄχθος ξυνοικεῖ. — ἤνυσαν”, effected, brought about, as Ph. 1145κοινὰν ἤνυσεν ἐς φίλους ἀρωγάν”. Not, ‘have made too heavy,’ like O. T. 166ἠνύσατ᾽ ἐκτοπίαν φλόγα πήματος”.
