The δῆλον of the MSS. can mean only "manifest to me" (a very weak sense): for it could not bear the emphatic sense, "in living presence" (as opp. to "in my fancy"). Nor, again, can it well be taken as a parenthetic adv., "'tis clear" (like Ai. 906αὐτὸς πρὸς αὑτοῦ: δῆλον:”). The conjecture ἀδελφὸν (cp. Ant. 1 κοινὸν αὐτάδελφον Ἰσμήνης κάρα”) may be right.
