2 We may also compare Ai. 789 f., “φέρων...πρᾶξιν” (‘announcing his fortune’), with Pers. 248, “φέρει...πρᾶγος” (in a like sense): and Ai. 769, “ἐπισπάσειν κλέος”, with a similar use of the active “ἐπέσπασεν” in Pers. 477.
3 Muff Chr., Chorische Technik d. Soph. pp. 52, 78 ff.; and O. Hense, Der Chor. des Soph. p. 5. Nauck adopts this view in the 8th ed. of Schneidewin's Ajax, p. 63, and n. on 892 ff.
