κἄπειτ᾽ ἐπειδὴ: this harsh combination of sounds (as we should think it) is not rare; thus Ar. Eccl. 1100κἄπειτ᾽ ἐπειδὰν τῆσδ᾽ ἀπαλλαγῶ”: Vesp. 1322 “ἔπειτ᾽ ἐπειδὴ ᾿μέθυεν”: Plut. 695 “ἔπειτ᾽ ἐπειδὴ μεστὸς ἦν”: [Dem. ] or. 59 § 89 “ἔπειτ᾽ ἐπειδὰν πεισθῇ”. Similarly Eur. Or. 238ἕως ἐῶσί ς᾿”: Helen. 1292 “ἢν γυνὴ γένῃ”: I. T. 1339 “ἦμεν ἥμενοι”.

ἐλώφησεν implies only respite or alleviation, not cure: cp. Thuc. 6. 12§ 1 “ἀπὸ νόσου μεγάλης καὶ πολέμου βραχύ τι λελωφήκαμεν”. Cp. Soph. Tr. 554 n.

πόνου: the simple gen. is usual with “λωφᾶν”: cp. Phaedr. 251 Cλωφᾷ..τῆς ὀδύνης”.
