νοσεῖ answers to “οἰωνοὺς” (“˘ ¯ ¯”) in 1058: it is certain, therefore, that a syllable has dropped out after it. δή (supplied by Triclinius) is at least tolerable, and is not precluded by “ἤδη”: cp. Eur. Tro. 233“δοῦλαι γὰρ δὴ” (‘very slaves’) | “Δωρίδος ἐσμὲν χθονὸς ἤδη”. So here “δή” will emphasise “νοσεῖ”. For other conjectures, see Appendix.
