[202] ἴδοιτο: the omission of “τις”, though rare, is here amply justified by Il. 13.287 οὐδέ κεν ἔνθα τεόν γε μένος καὶ χεῖρας ὄνοιτο, Χ 199 ὡς δ᾽ ἐν ὀνείρῳ οὐ δύναται φεύγοντα διώκειν”; so in Theog. 741, and (with a participle) Op.12 Op., v. l. 291, h. xxix.6, and Il. 14.58 (“γνοίη” Aristoph. ). See Kühner-Jelf § 373. 6, L. and S. s.v. “τις”. In later poetry cf. e.g. Theocr. xvii. 41; for prose cf. Plat. Symp.i. 8, Rep. Ath. i. 10. The indefinite third person is preferable to M's “ἴδοιμι”, which, however, is not necessarily a correction.
