ἀλλ᾽ ἐμὲ ψέγεις the thought of ὀργὴν ἐμέμψω τὴν ἐμήν returns upon itself, as if from a sense that the contrast between ἐμέμψω and κατεῖδες would be imperfectly felt without such an iteration. This is peculiarly Sophoclean; cp. above 166（ἔλθετε καὶ νῦν）: Schneidewin cp. also Soph. Aj. 1111 “οὐ ... τῆς σῆς οὕνεκ᾽ ... ι ἀλλ᾽ οὕνεχ᾽ ὅρκων ... ι σοῦ δ᾽ οὐδέν”: and similarly Soph. Ant. 465 ff., Soph. Trach. 431 ff., Soph. El. 361 ff.
