τῆςἐχίδνης, that which guards Chrysè's shrine (1327). The definite art. is sufficiently natural, as Ph. is following the train of his own memories, —even if he supposes that N. has not heard of the “ἔχιδνα” before (cp. 255).— χαράγματι, the rent left by the serpent's bite: cp. Anacreontea 26 “πυρὸς χάραγμ̓” (brand of fire,—on horses): [Eur. ] Rhes. 73 “νῶτον χαραχθείς” (wounded).
