μή μοι βεβήκῃ. “μοι” is ethic dat. ( Ant. 50 n.) The subjunct. is right here: cp. 30κυρῇ”, n. The indic. “βέβηκε” would also be correct ( Dem. or. 19 § 96δέδοικα μὴ λελήθαμεν”), but would express conviction rather than anxious fear.—For “βέβηκα” as=“οἴχομαι”, of death, cp. Eur. Andr. 1026βέβακε δ᾽ Ἀτρείδας ἀλόχου παλάμαις.

τοῖς ἱγμένοις, instr. dat.: for ἔστελλον, cp. 60 n.—The partic. “ἱγμένος” occurs only here. In Tr. 229 we have “ἵγμεθα”.
