τὸ τηνίκ᾽ ἤδη, just when that time had come (the art. as in “τὸ αὐτίκα, "ατ τηε μομεντ,"Thuc. 2.41). While τηνικάδε ("at this time of day") was common, the simple τηνίκα occurs nowhere else in elass. Attic; it is found, however, in the Alexandrian poets, and in later Greek.

τοῦτο μέν is answered by δέ (441) instead of τοῦτο δέ, as by “ἔπειτα δέAnt. 63), “τοῦτ᾽ αὖθιςib. 165), “εἶταPh. 1345), “τοῦτ᾽ ἄλλοO. T. 605).
