πόνῳ … κακῶν=“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 ι ἆθλ᾽” （Ph. 508), “πόνων ι λατρεύματ᾽” （Tr. 356), “ἄεθλ᾽ ἀγώνων” （ib. 506). βεβηκὼς, as El. 1056 “ὅταν γὰρ ἐν κακοῖς ι ἤδη βεβήκῃς”: ib. 1094 “μοίρᾳ μὲν οὐκ ἐν ἐσθλᾷ ι βεβῶσαν.” ἐμοί depending on ταὐτῷ: cp. O.T. 284 n.
