[326] μὴ πρὸς θεῶν κ.τ.λ. The attribution of these two verses to the Chorus in some MSS. is probably due to the plur. in 327 having misled those who did not see that the king speaks for all Thebes.

φρονῶν γ᾽ if thou hast understanding (of this matter): cp. 569 ἐφ᾽ οἷς γὰρ μὴ φρονῶ σιγᾶν φιλῶ: not, “if thou art sane.” But in 328 οὐ φρονεῖτε= “are without understanding,” “are senseless.”
