[361] ὠμόργαζε: a brilliant emendation. The form does not recur, but for the radical verb (in the same context) cf. Od. 18.199 τὴν δὲ γλυκὺς ὕπνος ἀνῆκε, καί ῤ̔ ἀπομόρξατο χερσὶ παρειάς”. Baumeister notes that “αὐγαί” for “eyes” is elsewhere first found in Attic tragedy.

ἀλεγύνων: the reading is settled by “ἀγλαΐας ἀλέγυνε” 476; for the variants cf. 85, 557. In Homer “ἀλεγύνειν” is found only in the Odyssey, of preparing a meal.
