πόνῳκακῶν=“πολυπόνοις κακοῖς”, the gen. being added to define “πόνῳ” more closely. Since “πόνος” was a word of such general meaning, the phrase, though unusual, seems defensible. Cp. such phrases as “δυσοίστων πόνων ἆθλ᾽Ph. 508), “πόνων λατρεύματ᾽Tr. 356), “ἄεθλ᾽ ἀγώνωνib. 506).

βεβηκὼς, as El. 1056ὅταν γὰρ ἐν κακοῖς ἤδη βεβήκῃς”: ib. 1094μοίρᾳ μὲν οὐκ ἐν ἐσθλᾷ βεβῶσαν.

ἐμοί depending on ταὐτῷ: cp. O.T. 284 n.
