ἀκούειν to hear of, defining ἀθλιώτερος: Eur. Hipp. 1202 “φρικώδη κλύειν.” Whose woes are more impressive to others, or more cruel for himself? Cp. Soph. OC 306 “πολὺ ... τὸ σὸν ι ὄνομα διήκει πάντας.” The constr. is τίς ἀθλιώτερος ἀκούειν, τίς （ἀθλιώτερος） ξύνοικος ἐν ἄταις κ.τ.λ., who is more wretched to hear of （whose story is more tragic）, who is more wretched as dwelling amid woes （whose present miseries are sharper）? It is not possible to supply μᾶλλον with ξύνοικος fromἀθλιώτερος.
