[440] οὔκουν κ.τ.λ. Well (οὖν— if I do speak riddles), art not thou most skilled to read them?

τοιαῦτ᾽ ὀνείδιζέμοι ), make those things my reproach, in which [οἷς, dat. of circumstance] thou wilt find me great: i.e. mock my skill in reading riddles if thou wilt; but thou wilt find (on looking deeper) that it has brought me true honour.

τοιαῦτα ... οἷς as Soph. OC 1353 (n.), Soph. Ant. 691, etc.
