[345] καὶ μὴν with γε, “aye verily”: cp. Soph. El. 554, where ἢν ἐφῇς μοι is answered (556) by καὶ μὴν ἐφίημ᾽. (For a slightly different καὶ μήν ... γε, see Soph. OC 396.)

ὡς ὀργῆς ἔχω = ἔχων ὀργῆς ὡς ἔχω, being so wroth as I am. Thuc. 1.22ὡς ἑκατέρων τις εὐνοίας μνήμης ἔχοι”: Eur. Hel. 313πῶς δ᾽ εὐμενείας τοισίδ᾽ ἐν δόμοις ἔχεις;παρήσω ... οὐδὲντούτωνἅπερ ξυνίημ᾽, I will leave unsaid nothing (of those things) which I comprehend, i.e. I will reveal my whole insight into the plot. ξυνίημι suits the intellectual pride of Oedipus: he does not say “think” or “suspect”: cp. 628. For γὰρ after ἴσθι cp. 277.
