page 134 note 3 Ed. Fraenkel takes προνωπ⋯ to refer to Iphigeneia's position before she is seized. Since he also takes παντ⋯ θυμῷ with λαβεῖν, he is led to assume a very peculiar word order, despite the warning of W. Ferrari (Annali della R. Scuola N.S. di Pisa, 1938, p. 391).

page 134 note 4 πρ⋯πουσ⋯ θ' ὡς ⋯ν γραφαῖς need not mean that Aeschylus had in mind any particular painting. Professor Beazley writes: ‘I suppose that the heart of the comparison is the speaking look combined with the inability to speak. Aeschylus is thinking of the great new art of his time, with its new power of expressing π⋯θος, not of the simple works of early periods.’ Cf. Isthmiastae, F 1 A in Mette, Nachtrag zum Suppl. Aesch. i. 6–7: … .

1 This note originally formed part of a paper read to the Cambridge Philological Society in October 1951. I am obliged to Professor D. L. Page, Professor A. J. Beattie, and Mr. G. S. Kirk for their assistance: and to Sir John Beazley for allowing me to quote from two very helpful letters in which he discussed the black-figure amphora to which I allude.
