πόλιν τε κἀμὲ καὶ σ᾽ The king's soul grieves for the whole State, —for himself, charged with the care of it, —and for each several man（σέ）. As the first contrast is between public and private care, κἀμέ stands between πόλιν and σέ. For the elision of σέ, though accented, cp. 329 τἄμ᾽, ὡς ἂν εἴπω μὴ τὰ σ᾽: 404 καὶ τὰ σ᾽: Soph. El. 1499 “τὰ γοῦν σ᾽”: Soph. Phil. 339 “οἴμοι μὲν ἀρκεῖν σοί γε καὶ τὰ σ᾽”: Eur. Hipp. 323 “ἔα μ᾽ ἁμαρτεῖν: οὐ γὰρ ἐς σ᾽ ἁμαρτάνω.”
