The vocative σὺ is no argument for the conjecture βουλεύετον.—Pylades was the son of that Strophius, king of Phocis, in whose house the young Orestes had found a refuge. Thus Pindar speaks of a Pythian victory as won “ἐν ἀφνεαῖς ἀρούραισι Πυλάδα” (P. 11. 15). Euripides notices the legend that Orestes bestowed the hand of Electra upon his friend (El. 1350: Paus. 2. 16. 7). His name recurs at v. 1373.
