ἦν δ᾽ ἐγώ. There seems to be no other case in which ἦν δ᾽ ἐγώ is so long deferred. Stallbaum and Bekker insert the words after σκληρότητος without any MS authority. If change is needed, ἦν δ᾽ ἐγώ had better be omitted (so q, whose reading is very different here). But it is better to note than to obliterate such peculiarities.

ὡς is not ‘pro simplici vel ὡς positum’ (Stallbaum), but=‘quam quomodo.’
