[30] It is an old question whether we should read ὑπὲρ μόρον or “ὑπέρμορον”. Most of the grammarians, Aph., Ar. (?), Ptol. of Askalon etc. preferred the latter, on account of “ὑπέρμορα2.155 (q. v.). Herodianos hesitated (La R. H. T. 371). The familiar “ὑπὲρ αἶσαν”, however, is in favour of division. The sense is of course precisely the same. — The lines recorded by Sch. T are a mere conjecture, unless they come from one of the erratic texts recorded in the earliest papyri. They were substituted for 29-30 because the omniscient god ought not to fear what might happen.
