κείνοις with βαρύς only.

δυστυχῶν=if it does not receive due honours: cp. “ἄμοιρος...νέκυς” of a corpse denied due rites (Ant. 1071).

τύμβον δὲ βουλοίμην ἂν ἀξιούμενον
τὸν ἐμὸν ὁρᾶσθαι

. Since in death (390) he was still to sway their destiny, they wished his grave to be where they could make the due offerings (“ἐναγίζειν”) at it: cp. Her. 2.44τῷ μὲν ὡς ἀθανάτῳ...θύουσι, τῷ δὲ...ὡς ἥρωι ἐναγίζουσι”. Such “ἐναγισμός” would be at least annual (cp. Isae. or. 2 § 46). The schol. takes δυστυχῶν as = "if not on Theban soil": but this is excluded by 407.
