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