δρομαία: Eur. Or.45πηδᾷ δρομαῖος”. Thuc.3. 29σχολαῖοι κομισθέντες”.—We may render, ‘warned her son of her intent’; but the literal sense is, ‘warned the son of her who was devising these things’: the gen. depends on “τῷ παιδί”. Others take the gen. with φράζω (‘tell him about her’). It would then be best to govern “τάδε” by “φράζω”: for in this constr. of the gen. with verbs of saying or asking, the object is usually expressed, either by an acc. ( Soph. El.317, Soph. Ai.1236), or by a relat. clause (belowSoph. Ai., 1122, Soph. Ph.439). τάδε, however, belongs rather to τεχνωμένης.
