τεκνοῦσσα: schol. “τέκνα ἔχουσα ὅπερ Καλλίμαχός φησι παιδοῦσα” [“παιδοῦσσα”: though Schneider Callim. fr. 431 defends “τεκνοῦσα” and “παιδοῦσα”]. No part of “τεκνόεις” or “παιδόεις” occurs elsewhere. But the adj. is decidedly fitter here than τεκοῦσα (esp. in view of v. 311): nor is there sufficient ground for the assumption that “τεκνοῦσσα” would imply several children.

πρὸςφύσιν, judging by it: cp. Ph.885 n.: “φύσις” of physical aspect, as O. T.740: but otherwise below O. T., 379.πάντωντῶνδε, schol. “τῶν ἐκ τοῦ γάμου προσγινομένων”. The different surmise in 536 agrees better with 1225 f.

γενναία =“εὐγενής” ( O. C.76 etc.).
