[269-280] construe: καὶ εὔχομαι τοῖς ταῦτα μὴ δρῶσιν [for them, Soph. Phil. 1019 “καί σοι πολλάκις τόδ᾽ ηὐξαμην”] θεοὺς ἀνιέναι αὐτοῖς μήτ᾽ ἄροτόν τινα γῆς, μήτ᾽ οὖν γυναικῶν παῖδας. The acc. θεοὺς as subject to ἀνιέναι is better than a dat. θεοῖς with εὔχομαι would be: Xen. Anab. 6.1.26 “εὔχομαι δοῦναί μοι τοὺς θεοὺς αἴτιόν τινος ὑμῖν ἀγαθοῦ γενέσθαι”: Aristoph. Thes. 350 “ταῖς δ᾽ ἄλλαισιν ὑμῖν τοὺς θεοὺς ι εὔχεσθε πάσαις πολλὰ δοῦναι κἀγαθά.”
