ἠμπόληκας=“πέπραγας”, ‘fared’: Hippocr. De morb. II. p. 353 (Kühn) “κάλλιον ἐμπολήσει ἄνθρωπος”, ‘the patient's state will be better.’ In Aesch. Eum. 631ἠμποληκότα τὰ πλεῖστ᾽ ἄμεινον” (so Herm. , for “ἀμείνον̓”), the sense is similar.—Hermann, reading ἠμπόληκά ς᾿, explained, ‘Num te morando prodidi?’ This seems clearly less fitting.
