[245] πάντα κατὰ μοῖραν. Cp. inf. 309, 342; Od.4. 783; 8.54.

ἔμβρυον is used here of the young after birth, and not in the later sense of ‘embryo;’ so in Virg. Ecl.3. 30‘binos alit ubere fetus.’ Join ὑπὸ-ἧκεν, as Theocr. 25. 104 “τέκνα φίλαις ὑπὸ μητράσιν ἵει”, Colum. 7. 4 ‘agni summittuntur nutricibus.’
