τητώμεναι: cp. on 1200.— The simplest view of the MS. “τὸ λοιπὸν ἤδη βίοτον διάξετον” is Elmsley's, that “βίοτον” was written by a mistake for “τὸν βίον”. (The error here affords no ground for suspecting “βίοτον” in 1584.) But “τοῦ βίου” (Suidas) is equally possible: cp. O. T. 1487νοούμενος τὰ λοιπὰ τοῦ πικροῦ βίου”. The constr. “τὸν λοιπὸν...τοῦ βίου” would be a rare one: Dem. or. 15 § 16πρὸς τὸν λοιπὸν τοῦ χρόνου”, Xen. Cyr. 4.5.1τοῦ σίτου...τὸν ἥμισυν”: so “ πολλὴ τῆς γῆς”, etc.
