[1479] μὲ is required here, since with με the stress would fall wholly on φρουρήσας. On the other hand in 1478 καί σε is right, because, after εὐτυχοίης, the person does not need to be at once emphasised again. This is not, however, like Hom. Il. 23.724 μ᾽ ἀνάειρ᾽ ἐγὼ σέ,” where με suffices because the sense is, “slay or be slain.” In Soph. El. 383, Soph. El. 1213με” and σοι are justified by the stress on ὕστερον and προσήκει respectively.
