τοῖν ... φίλοιν ι δακρυρροούντοιν Cp. Soph. Ant. 381 “οὐ δή που ..;” In participles belonging to the 3rd declens. the masc. form of the dual is often used as fem.; indeed the specially fem. forms, such as ἐχούσα, are very rare. See Soph. OC append. on 1676, p. 293. Similarly τώ, τοῖν, τούτοιν, οἶν were the usual fem. forms: cp. 1462 f., 1504, and Soph. Ant. 769 n. Thus Xen. Cyrop. 1.2.11 “μίαν ἄμφω τούτω τὼ ἡμέρα λογίζονται.” Plat. Phaedrus 237d “ἡμῶν ἐν ἐκάστῳ δύο τινέ ἐστον ἰδέα ἄρχοντε καὶ ἄγοντε, οἶν ἑπόμεθα.” So τὼ θεώ, τοῖν θεοῖν （Demeter and Persephone）.
