μέγα ἅζομαι: unless with Ruhnken we insert “ς᾿” there is an hiatus, which however may be justified by Theog. 532 “ταῦτ᾽ ἄρα ἁζόμενος” (this is practically the MS. tradition, as the only variant is “ἄῤ” for “ἄρα”; see Rzach's note). Curtius “γρυνδζüγε” p. 162, Prellwitz s.v., and Fortunatov K. Z. xxxvi. 46 assume an initial yod which would produce hiatus. The same explanation is sometimes given of “ὡς” making position (H. G. § 397).
