1500-1555: Fifth episode

αὖ: cp. 887.

ἠχεῖται is probably pass., as we find “ἠχῶ γόους, ὕμνον”, etc. (The midd. occurs in Pind. fr. 53. 18 “ἀχεῖται Σεμέλαν...χοροί”.)

σαφὴς would ordinarily have been repeated in the second clause (cp. 5); but the equivalent ἐμφανὴς takes its place: cp. O. T. 54ἄρξεις...κρατεῖς”: Ant. 669καλῶς...εὖ”: also El. 986 f.: Ai. 647, 1323. The two adjectives could not be contrasted.

ἀστῶν is a certain correction of αὐτῶν, which, as=“"you yourselves,"” would be very awkward after “ὑμῶν” and “κοινός”.
