σοφίᾳ, modal dat.,=“σοφῶς”: cp. El. 233 “εὐνοίᾳ γ᾽ αὐδῶ”: so “ὀργῇ” (O. T. 405), “θυμῷ” (O. C. 659), etc. ἔκ του, i.e. by some wise man of olden time:—not like the “οὐκ ἔφα τις” in Aesch. Ag. 369 (alluding to Diagoras). Cp. frag. adesp. 383 (schol. on Tr. 296) “καὶ τοῦτο τοὔπος ἐστὶν ἀνδρὸς ἔμφρονος, ι ὅταν καλῶς πράσσῃ τις, ἐλπίζειν κακά”. For similar “γνῶμαι” in tragic lyrics, cp. Aesch. Ag. 750, Ch. 313. πεφάνται: Tr. 1 “λόγος μὲν ἔστ᾽ ἀρχαῖος ἀνθρώπων φανείς”: O. T. 525, 848.
