ἔρροι τ̓: the “τε” should properly. follow “αἰδώς”: cp. O. T. 258κυρῶ τ᾽ ἐγὼ” instead of “ἐγώ τε κυρῶ.

αἰδὼς is respect for those opinions and feelings of mankind which condemn wrong-doing; as εὐσέβεια is reverence for the gods. Cp. Od. 2. 65ἄλλους τ᾽ αἰδέσθητε περικτίονας ἀνθρώπους” | “οἳ περιναιετάουσι: θεῶν δ᾽ ὑποδείσατε μῆνιν”.
