ἰοὺς: we might expect ἰούς γ̓, since the question in 104 is not, ‘what resource has he?’ but, ‘has he some resource?’ And in 104 we cannot well change τι to τί. L has probably lost γ̓ in some other places: see, e.g., on Ant. 648, Ant. 1241.But γ̓ is not indispensable, and by its absence the reply gains a certain abrupt force. Cp. 985, Tr. 629.
