πλήρωμα (nom.), sc.γενήσεται”: —cp. Eur. Hec.574οἱ δὲ πληροῦσιν πυράν”, | “κορμοὺς φέροντες πευκίνους”. Though “πλήρωσις” would have been more natural, “πλήρωμα”, expressing the result, is equally correct here.

1214 (“πληρώσω”), ὅσον γε (“πληρώσαιμ̓”) ἂν μὴ ποτιψ.: cp. O. T.347εἰργάσθαι θ̓, ὅσον” | “μὴ χερσὶ καίνων” (sc.εἶχες εἰργάσθαι”). Hyllus will help to hew the wood, but not to build the pyre. The pyre was kindled by Philoctetes, or, acc. to another version, by Poeas ( Ph.802 n.).— ποτιψαύων: tragic lyrics admit “ποτί” (fr. 225), and its compounds (1030 “ἀποτίβατος”: Aesch. Theb.94ποτιπέσω”, etc.). But tragic dialogue presents no other example, except Aesch. Eum.79ποτὶ πτόλιν”.
