εἰσηκούσαμεν, i.e., from some one in the neighbourhood. These envoys from Strophius (1111) are not supposed to have travelled with the messenger from Phanoteus (670). The poet has skilfully varied the dialogue from the similar one in 660 ff.

ὀρθῶς θ̓. The v. l. δ̓ for θ̓, though it has the better authority, is improbable here. For instances in which τε can fitly be followed by δέ, see Ant. 1096(n.), Tr. 143(n.).

ἔνθα here=‘whither’: Ph. 1466.
