τίς θυμός, what impulse of passion, τίνες νόσοι, what pangs of frenzy ( Ai.59“φοιτῶντ᾽ ἄνδρα μανιάσιν νόσοις”). The words “ἢ τίνες νόσοι” are really parenthetical,—suggesting that the excited mind (“θυμός”) may have been also deranged; hence the verb can agree with “θυμός”, on which the chief stress falls.— ξυνεῖλε, corripuit, seized and carried off; cp. Thuc.2. 51（“ὁ λοιμὸς”) “πάντα ξυνῄρει”. Not, ‘destroyed her along with Heracles.’
