εἷλον … πρόδοτον. The murderous hands ‘took her life captive,’ since the crime placed her wholly in their power (264); and this was done by treachery. “πρόδοτον” is predicative, expressing the mode of capture; cp. Thuc. 6. 102“ἡγούμενοι” (“τὸν κύκλον”) “ἐρῆμον αἱρήσειν”. But in Soph. Tr. 240, “ᾕρει...ἀνάστατον”.. | “χώραν”, the adj. is proleptic.
