As to Nauck's change in the order of these verses (cr. n.), it is enough to observe that (1) Lichas could not reply to the question of his “δέσποινα” with such a rebuff as σὺ δ᾽ εἰς τί δή με κ.τ.λ. (2) It is out of accord with Deianeira's courteous dignity that she should address Lichas with such words as τόλμησον εἰπεῖν, εἰ φρονεῖς κ.τ.λ.
