ὡς οὐ δίκῃ γ̓: “γε”, emphasising “δίκῃ”, is suitable here, since “δικαίως” (560) expressed the first of two alternatives. For the omission of the object to “ἔκτεινας”, cp. Ph. 801(“ἔμπρησον”), n.— ἔσπασεν, a stronger word than “εἵλκυσε”: cp. Ant. 791(of Erôs) “σὺ καὶ δικαίων ἀδίκους φρένας παρασπᾷς ἐπὶ λώβᾳ”.— πειθὼ: cp. Od. 3. 264(Aegisthus) “πόλλ᾽ Ἀγαμεμνονέην ἄλοχον θέλγεσκ᾽ ἐπέεσσιν”.
