ὥς μ᾽ ὑπῆλθέ τις φόβος. For this use of “τις”, in foreboding, cp. Ai. 1163ἔσται μεγάλης ἔριδός τις ἀγών”: for its place, cp. 104, 519, 1039. ὡς (‘how!’) as in El. 1112τί δ᾽ ἔστιν, ξέν̓; ὥς μ᾽ ὑπέρχεται φόβος”.—Seyffert's conject., τοι for “τις” ( El. 928θαῦμά τοί μ᾽ ὑπέρχεται”), seems less fitting after “ὡς”. With regard to Nauck's ὑπήλυθεν, it may be noted that neither Aesch. nor Soph. admits “ἤλυθον” in dialogue, though Eur. does so ( Soph. El. 598).
