εὖ νυν ἐπίστω, as in O.T. 658. (In Ph. 1240εὖ νῦν ἐπίστω” is fitter.) “νυν” precedes a vowel also in O.T. 644, Ant. 705, Ai. 1129.

ἔξωρα, ‘unseasonable,’ from “ὥρα” in the sense of “καιρός”: not, ‘unsuited to my age.’ In Aeschin. or. 1. § 95 “ἔξωρος”= ‘past one's prime.’

προσεικότα: Ph. 902 f. “τὴν αὑτοῦ φύσιν” | “ὅταν λιπών τις δρᾷ τὰ μὴ προσεικότα”.
