ὦ χεῖρες: his arms have been seized by the two attendants, one of whom stands on each side of him: but we are not to infer from 1016 (“συνδήσας”) that he was actually bound. Cp. 1054. Heracles in Tr. 1089 uses a similar apostrophe; “ὦ χέρες, χέρες κ.τ.λ.” ἐν χρείᾳ: for “ἐν”, denoting circumstance, cp. 185 n. συνθηρώμεναι: cp. Ant. 432“σὺν δέ νιν” | “θηρώμεθ᾽ εὐθύς”.
