στέργε: cp. Eur. Andr.213, where Andromachè is giving Hermionè the same kind of advice;—“χρὴ γὰρ γυναῖκα, κἂν κακῷ πόσει δοθῇ”, | “στέργειν, ἅμιλλάν τ᾽ οὐκ ἔχειν φρονήματος.—λόγους οὓς εἶπας ἐς τήνδ̓”, alluding to the assurance given in 462 ff.: for ἐς, ‘with regard to,’ cp. Soph. Ph.1053.The reference is not to Deianeira's reception of Iolè in 310— 334.

ἐμπέδως, unalterably,—i.e., so that the promise shall be kept: cp. 827: Ph.1197ἴσθι τόδ᾽ ἔμπεδον”. The conjecture ἐμπέδους is plausible, but not necessary.

488 f. Either τἄλλ̓ or χεροῖν ought logically to be absent.
