ἔβλαστ̓: in what human being has such impiety ever been inborn? Cp. 440: Ant. 563οὐδ᾽ ὃς ἂν βλάστῃ μένει” | “νοῦς τοῖς κακῶς πράσσουσιν”. The gloss “ἐνομοθετήθη” points to another interpretation of “ἔβλαστ̓”, viz., ‘has become usual’ (cp. Ant. 296κακὸν νόμισμ᾽ ἔβλαστε”): and to this the conjecture “τίσι” for “τίνι” (cr. n.) was adapted.
