τί γὰρ γέροντος ἀνδρὸς Εὐρυσθεῖ πλέονId., pp. 102-103 (Children of Heracles 969):
for what profit does Eurytheus have in the death of an old man?
χρῆν τόνδε μὴ ζῆν μηδ᾿ ἔτ᾿ εἰσορᾶν φάος.In both passages read Eurystheus, not Eurytheus. The typographical errors persist in the Digital Loeb Classical Library. In the Greek at line 969 Eurystheus isn't actually named (τόνδε = this one, this fellow).
Eurytheus ought not to live and look any more on the light of the sun.
