᾿πόρευσαν and πόρευσαν are alike admissible in this “ῥῆσις” (cp. 1606 ff.), but the former seems preferable on the general principle of not multiplying omissions of augment without necessity. (Cp. Tr. 560μισθοῦ ᾿πόρευε”.) “"Brought this behest,"i.e. the water for which he had asked. Eur. Phoen. 984ΜΕΝ. χρημάτων δὲ τίς πόρος; ΚΠ. ἐγὼ πορεύσω χρυσόν”. Cp. on 1458πόροι.

ταχεῖ σὺν χρ.: cp. 885: Tr. 395σὺν χρόνῳ βραδεῖ μολών.

λουτροῖς, as the dead were washed: Lucian De Luctu 11 “μετὰ ταῦτα δὲ λούσαντες αὐτοὺς...προτίθενται”. So Ai. 1405λουτρῶν ὁσίων” (for the dead Ajax).
