[1472] τοῖν ... φίλοιν δακρυρροούντοιν Cp. Soph. Ant. 381οὐ 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. 1.2.11μίαν ἄμφω τούτω τὼ ἡμέρα λογίζονται.Plat. Phaedrus 237dἡμῶν ἐν ἐκάστῳ δύο τινέ ἐστον ἰδέα ἄρχοντε καὶ ἄγοντε, οἶν ἑπόμεθα.” So τὼ θεώ, τοῖν θεοῖν (Demeter and Persephone).
