λόγῳ, in the light of reason, with calm reflection (in contrast to the blind passion for power which afterwards seized them), a dat. of manner, cp. 381, O. T. 405 “ὀργῇ λελέχθαι”, Ant. 621 “σοφίᾳ...ἔπος πέφανται.” τὴν πάλαι … φθοράν, beginning with the curse called down on Laïus by Pelops, for robbing him of his son Chrysippus. Cp. Ant. 596 “῾οφ τηις λαβδαξιδ ηουσἐ οὐδ᾽ ἀπαλλάσσει γενεὰν γένος, ἀλλ᾽ ἐρείπει ι θεῶν τις” etc.: one generation doth not free another, but some god brings ruin.
