λόγῳ κλέπτοντες: cp. I. Il. 131μὴ”... | “κλέπτε νόῳ”: Soph. Ph. 992κλέψας λόγοισιν ὥσθ᾽ βούλομαι τυχεῖν”.

φέρωμεν is clearly right: it depends on “ἥξομεν κ.τ.λ.” (53), and continues the exposition of the plan which he is about to execute. “φέροιμεν” could depend only upon “κεκρυμμένον” (‘which was hidden in order that we might bring,’ etc.). Similarly in O. C. 11πυθώμεθα” has been corrupted in the MSS. to “πυθοίμεθα”.

ἔρρει=“ἀπόλωλε”: cp. 925: O. T. 560ἄφαντος ἔρρει” (Laïus).

δέμας, of a corpse, as 756, 1161: in Homer, always of the living ( Ant. 205 n.).
