ὅποι γῆςφέρει (cp. O. T. 1309ποῖ γᾶς φέρομαι”..; ), in a figurative sense, —‘you know not into what regions your thoughts are straying,’—i.e., how far from realities: “ὅποι γνώμης” explains this. Cp. 390; and a proverb cited by G. Wolff from Apostolius Paroem. 14. 57 “ποῦ γῆς θαλάττης ὑπῆρχες; ἐπὶ τῶν ἀνοήτων” (as we say, ‘to be at sea’).
