ποθοῦντι προὐφάνης: cp. O. T. 1356θέλοντι κἀμοὶ τοῦτ᾽ ἂν ἦν”, n.: Il. 12.374ἐπειγομένοισι δ᾽ ἵκοντο.

καί σοι θεῶν: “"and some god (cp. 1100) hath ordained for thee the good fortune of this coming"”: τύχηνὁδοῦ, a fortune belonging to (connected with) it.—The MS. θῆκε was a mere blunder caused by transposition. As to the occasional omission of the syllabic augment in tragic “ῥήσεις”, see on O. T. 1249. Cp. above, 974.
