σώσαςἐχθρῶν: the gen. as after “λύω, ἐλευθερόω”: Ph. 919σῶσαι κακοῦ”: Eur. Or. 779σωθῆναι κακῶν”.— The regular constr. would have been “ἦν ζηλωτός, σώσας μὲν χθόνα, λαβὼν δὲ μοναρχίαν”. For δέ, τε has been substituted, as in Tr. 1012πολλὰ μὲν ἐν πόντῳ κατά τε δρία πάντα καθαίρων”: Ph. 1056πάρεστι μὲν Τεῦκρος,... ἐγώ θ᾽”: ib. 1136ὁρῶν μὲν αἰσχρὰς ἀπάτας, στυγνόν τε φῶτ᾽”. Then in the second clause, λαβών τε, a new finite verb, ηὔθυνε, has been inserted, with the result that “λαβών” now begins a new sentence. Cp. 815ὕμνησεν”, n.— παντελῆ, complete; Plat. Legg. 698A παντελὴς...ἐλευθερία”: cp. 737 n.

ηὔθυνε: cp. 178: O. T. 104ἀπευθύνειν πόλιν”. The temporal augment for verbs beginning with “ευ” is attested by Attic inscrr. of c. 403—321 B.C. (Meisterhans, p. 78).

εὐγενεῖ, not “εὐγενῶν”: 793 n.
