τοὔργον τόδε, the task of lifting the sufferer (who is lying “προπετής”, 976) into a position of greater ease (1025 “πρόσλαβε κουφίσας”). μεῖζον is proleptic with ἀνήκει, ‘has risen, so as to be greater’: cp. Dem. or. 2 § 8 “ἤρθη μέγας”. The usu. constr. of “ἀνήκειν”, as=‘to reach’ a certain standard, <*>s with “εἰς”, as if here we had “εἰς μεῖζόν τι”.
