ἀραίου Διός, Zeus “ἱκέσιος” (484 n.) in another aspect,—as the god who hears the imprecation of the rejected suppliant. “ἀραῖος” does not occur elsewhere as an epithet of Zeus, but among his titles were “ἀλάστωρ” (Cramer Anecd. Ox. 1. 62), “τιμωρός” (Clemens Protrept. p. 24) and “παλαμναῖος” ( De Mundo 7). ἔλθῃς=“ἀπέλθῃς”: 48 n. 1183 The older edd. give μετρίαζε in full (making the choriambic verse hypercatalectic): Brunck wrote μετρίαζ̓. For the sense, cp. Plat. Rep. 603E “μετριάσει δέ πως πρὸς λύπην”.
