τὸ δεινὸν: so Antigone to Ismene, Ant. 95“ἔα με”.. | “παθεῖν τὸ δεινὸν τοῦτο.” εἰ γὰρ τῶνδέ μοι. Elmsley proposed “δὲ” instead of “γάρ”. But the spondee can stand in the 5th foot, since εἰ coheres with the following words (the metrical effect being as that of one word, e.g. “ἐξαιρούμενον”): so O. C. 115“ἐν γὰρ τῷ μαθεῖν”.
