ἐπεγγελῷεν, as in 454, 989.— κάτα, placed after its case, as in 302, and also separated from it, like “ἐν” in 906. We find “κατά” joined with a similar compound verb in El. 834 f. “κατ᾽ ἐμοῦ”.. | “μᾶλλον ἐπεμβάσει”.—Conjectures which aim at ἐγγελῷεν (“τοιοῦδ̓, τοῦδ᾽ ἄν, τοῦδέ γ̓”) are needless: the stress on τοῦδ̓ mitigates the harshness of the verse.
