ποίῳ is conformed to ὅτῳ in 1348, since the acc. for οἶσθα is suppressed; the practice being that, in a curt question such as this, “ποῖος” takes the case of the word to which it refers (e.g., O. T. 1176ποίων; Ai. 1322ποίους”; ). It implies that, for the moment, she fails not only to recognise the man but to recall the occasion: cp. O. T. 1129ποῖον ἄνδρα καὶ λέγεις”;

οὗχεροῖν: the long space between the words is noteworthy; cp. Ph. 598 f. (“τίνος..χάριν”), n.

πέδον: cp. O. C. 643δόμους στείχειν” (n.).

ὑπεξεπέμφθην: cp. 297ὑπεξέθου” (n.).

σῇ προμηθίᾳ: cp. 12, 1132 f.
