ἀστακτὶ has “ι_” in 1646. The general rule (Blomfield glossar. Aesch. PV 216) is that such adverbs, when from nouns in “η” or “α”, end in ει (as “αὐτοβοεί”): when from nouns in “ος”, in “ι”, which is more often short, but sometimes long. For ι^ cp. “ἐγερτί” (Ant. 413), “νεωστί” (El. 1049), “σκυθιστί” (fr. 429), “ἀωρί” (Aristoph. Eccl. 741), “ἀνδριστί” (ib. 149), “δωριστί” (Eq. 989), the Homeric “ἀμογητί, μεγαλωστί”, etc. For “ι_, ἀνοιμωκτί” (Ai. 1227), “ἀνιδρωτί” (Il. 15.228), “ἀσπουδί” (8. 512), “ἀνωιστί” (Od. 4.92), etc.

ἀστακτὶ, not “στάγδην” (stillatim): Plat. Phaedo 117Cἐμοῦ γε...ἀστακτὶ ἐχώρει τὰ δάκρυα”. So Eur. I. T. 1242ἀστάκτων...ὑδάτων”, and Apoll. Rh. 3. 804ἀσταγές.

ὧδε=“δεῦρο”: cp. 1286, O. T. 7.
