σοῦται, instead of the MS. σεῦται, is now generally read here. Cp. Ai.1414σούσθω”: Aesch. Pers.25σοῦν<*> ται”: Vesp. 209 “σοῦ”. On the other hand, “σεῦται” has no nearer <*>arallel than the Homeric “στεῦται”: which some, indeed, regard as syncopated (Curtius, Gk. Verb, ch. iv. I. C), but others as a genuine non-thematic form (Leaf, Il.18. 191).

πάσας, complete: cp. Ai.436πᾶσαν εὔκλειαν.—ἀρετᾶς λάφυρα” (like “<*>θλα”), ‘things won by’ “ἀρετή” (root “λαβ”).
