ἀπ᾽ εὐνασθέντος … κακοῦ, lit., ‘from a lulled plague,’ i.e., from the repose allowed to me by its subsidence. This is simpler than to understand, ‘after the plague had been lulled,’ when “ἀπὸ” would be used like “ἐκ” (Theocr. 15. 106 “ἀθανάταν ἀπὸ θνατᾶς”).—The v. l. ἀπευνασθέντος would be rather a gen. absolute. “ἀπευνάζειν” does not occur.
