φωτὸς, about him (gen. of connection): cp. 441: n. on O. C. 307.—“τίκυρεῖ. κυρέω”, in ref. to a person's fortunes, can be either (1) intrans., with adv., as El. 1424ΗΛ. Ὀρέστα, πῶς κυρεῖτε; ΟΡ. τἀν δόμοισι μὲν” | “καλῶς”: or (2) trans., with acc., as Aesch. Ch. 214ἐπεὶ τί νῦν ἕκατι δαιμόνων κυρῶ”; (‘what do I obtain?’). Here κυρεῖ seems to be intrans., while τί is virtually adverbial: cp. Soph. O. C. 1704ἔπραξεν οἷον ἤθελεν” (=“ὅπως ἤθελεν”), ‘he has fared as he would.’
