ἥσθην: for the aor., cp. 1289 n.: for the acc., O. T. 236(n.): Ai. 136σὲ μὲν εὖ πράσσοντ᾽ ἐπιχαίρω”: Eur. Hipp. 1339τοὺς γὰρ εὐσεβεῖς θεοὶ” | “θνῄσκοντας οὐ χαίρουσι.

ἀμὸν for “ἐμὸν” is the best correction. The phrase “πατέρα τὸν ἀμὸν” occurs in El. 279, El. 588, El. 1496, and in the first two of those passages “ἀμὸν” in L has been made from “ἐμὸν”. Cp. 1118 above (“ἀμᾶς” for “ἐμᾶς”).—With “ἥσθην πατέρα τε τὸν ἐμὸν”, or “ἥσθην γε πατέρα τὸν ἐμὸν”, the rhythm is enfeebled by two consecutive tribrachs,—without the justification given in 1029 by the pause after “ἄγετε”. And γε would be somewhat weak.
