πατὴρ γάρ “κ.τ.λ.” A comma should follow “ἄλλο”, since “τέθνηκεν” depends on “πρόσχημά σοί” (“ἐστιν”) “ὡς”: cp. Her. 7. 157“πρόσχημα μὲν ποιεύμενος ὡς ἐπ᾽ Ἀθήνας ἐλαύνει”.—If there is no comma after “ἄλλο”, the constr. becomes most awkward. Thus Paley makes “ὡς” depend on “κλύω” (‘I am told’) supplied from v. 524. Campbell renders: ‘your father, that is what you are always holding forth, (how that he) died by my act’; adding: ‘By a kind of attraction, the main sentence, as it proceeds, becomes subordinated to the parenthesis.’ πρόσχημα here=“σκῆψις, πρόφασις”. Cp. 682.
