[341] ἥξει γὰρ αὐτά The subject to ἥξει is designedly left indeterminate: “(the things of which I wot) will come of themselves.” The seer is communing with his own thought, which dwells darkly on the κακά of v. 329. αὐτά = αὐτόματα: Hom. Il. 17.252ἀργαλέον δέ μοί ἐστι διασκοπιᾶσθαι ἕκαστον ... ἀλλά τις αὐτὸς ἴτω.” Cp. the phrase αὐτὸ δείξει, res ipsa arguet, the result will show: Soph. fr. 355 ταχὺ δ᾽ αὐτὸ δείξει τοὔργον.
