[879] τὸ καλῶς δ᾽ ἔχον but I ask that the god never do away with, abolish, that struggle which is advantageous for the city,—i.e. the contest in which citizen vies with citizen who shall most serve the State. The words imply a recognition of the προθυμία which Oed. had so long shown in the service of Thebes: cp. 48, 93, 247.
