πανδίκως (with στελεῖν) ‘as in duty bound,’—by the vow, and by a wife's natural sympathy. Cp. 294πανδίκῳ φρενί” (n.).—Others join the adv. with σωθέντ̓, as=‘completely’ (schol. “ἀνενδοιάστως”, ‘indubitably’). But there is no evidence for πανδίκως as merely= “παντελῶς”: cp. 1247: O. C.1306: [Eur. ] Rhes. 720 “ὄλοιτο πανδίκως” (‘as he deserves’).
