[342] οὐκοῦν γ᾽ ἥξει Elmsley, Nauck and Hartung read οὐκ οὖν ... ἐμοί; but the positive χρὴ is stronger without the query. “Then, seeing that they will come, thou on thy part (καὶ σὲ) shouldest tell them to me.” The stress of καὶ falls primarily on σὲ, but serves at the same time to contrast λέγειν with ἥξει. In γ᾽ ἥξει the causal force of the relative is brought out by γε: quippe quae ventura sint.
