οὐκ ἐπίσταμαι, am incapable of it: cp. 582: Ant.686 n. τῇδε τῇ νόσῳ, a very rare substitute for the cogn. accus. It is justified by the fact that “νοσεῖν” is a word of such wide meaning; while “τῇδε τῇ νόσῳ” here signifies, “ἔρωτι”. So in Aesch. P. V.384, “τῇδε τῇ νόσῳ νοσεῖν”, the dat. really means, ‘to be distempered in this special way’ (viz., by good sense).
