ἰοῦ, ἰοῦ: ‘Joy! Joy!’ ἰού dolentis, ἰοῦ gaudentis, according to the Scholiast on Ar. Peace 318: cf. Suidas s.v. Ancient authorities differed on the point (see Blaydes' critical note l.c.), but modern scholars for the most part agree with Suidas.

ἐκφευξεῖσθαι -- εὖ ἀγγέλλεις. The contracted form of the future of φεύγω is established by the authority both of the Paris MS, and also of Aristophanes and Euripides, as Schanz has proved (Vol. XII p. xvi). Schanz may be right in supposing that it is borrowed “ex ore populi.” For εὖ ἀγγέλλεις Phrynichus (S. V. εὐαγγελίζομαί σε) apparently read εὐαγγελεῖς, on which see Lobeck Phryn. p. 632 and Cobet N. L. p. 163. εὐαγγελῶ does not seem to be used in Attic prose. In Theaet. 144 B εὖ ἀγγέλλεις is read by B, εὖ ἀγγελεῖς by T.
