οὐδ᾽ εἰκός: “οὐδέ” here=‘nor,’ rather than, ‘not even.’

ἐντεθέρμανται. This compound is not found elsewhere, while “ἐκθερμαίνω” is frequent. But “ἔνθερμος” was common, and is applied by Arist. to a ‘fervid’ temperament (Physiogn. 2, p. 806 b 26: “διάνοιαν...ἔνθερμον”: 3 p. 808 a 37 “εὐφυεῖς καὶ ἔνθερμοι”). Here ἐν-, suggesting the inward, hidden flame, seems better than the more prosaic ἐκ-. In fr. 430. 3 the corrupt “εἶθ᾽ ἅλλεται” is corrected by Valckenaer (after Ruhnken) to “ἐνθάλπεται”, but by Ellendt to “ἐκθάλπεται”: and the latter is confirmed by Bekker Anecd. p. 40. 20.
