ἀνατέτροφας, from “ἀνατρέπω”: schol. “ τι ἂν ἡσυχάσῃ τοῦ κακοῦ τουτου”, “πάλιν κινήσας ἀνέτρεψας”. Cp. Hist. An. 8. 24 (p. 605 a 11) “κἂν καθαρὰ” (“τὰ ὕδατα”), “ἀνατρέπουσιν αὐτὰ οἱ ἵπποι ταῖς ὁπλαῖς”, ‘trouble’ them. For the perf., cp. Andoc. or. 1 § 131 “ἀλιτήριον αὑτῷ ἔτρεφεν, ὃς ἀνατέτροφεν ἐκείνου τὸν πλοῦτον” (‘overthrown’). Aeschin. or. 1 § 190 “πόλεις ἀνατετροφότας”: or. 3 § 158 “τὴν πόλιν ἄρδην ἀνατετροφότα”. In Soph. O. C.186τέτροφεν” is from “τρέφω”: but the classical use of that perf. is ordinarily confined to the intrans. sense ( Hom. Od.23. 237τέτροφεν ἅλμη”).

τι καὶ μύσῃ, anything that has closed the eyes, i.e., any part of the pain that has been lulled to rest. This is simpler than to supply “νόσον” with “ἀνατέτροφας”, and to take “ τι” as acc. of respect (‘in so far as...’). Cp. Vesp. 92 “ἢν δ᾽ οὖν καταμύσῃ κἂν ἄχνην”.
