ἡδέως has been variously altered, from a feeling that it is out of harmony with the tone of 29 f. and 149; but the word is well fitted to express that even a sound sleep, when it came to her, was apt to be suddenly broken. φόβῳ goes with ταρβοῦσαν, which it strengthens: cp. O. T.65“ὕπνῳ γ᾽ εὕδοντα” (n.): Ant.427“γόοισιν ἐξῴμωξεν”. ( O. C.1625 and Ph.225 are not similar.)
