φυγγάνει. This by-form of “φεύγω” occurs first in Aesch. P. V. 513.Greek presents in “-ανω” are of two classes,—those in which the stem remains unchanged, as “ἁμαρτ-άνω”; and those in which a nasal is added to it, as “φυγγάνω, θιγγάνω, λαμβάνω”, etc. (Curtius, Greek Verb, ch. IX, p. 174, Eng. tr.). In its compound forms, “φυγγάνω” was familiar to Attic prose: thus Dem. or. 23 has § 74 “ἀποφυγγάνει”: Aeschin. or. 3 § 208 “καταφυγγάνῃ”.

οὐδ᾽ ἐθέλω=“ἀλλ᾽ οὐκ ἐθέλω”: cp. Ai. 222ἀγγελίαν ἄτλατον οὐδὲ φευκτάν”: Il. 24. 25ἔνθ᾽ ἄλλοις μὲν πᾶσιν ἑήνδανεν, οὐδέ ποθ᾽ Ἥρῃ”. So “δέ”=“ἀλλά”, Ant. 85 n.
