τοῖνδε, not “ταῖνδε”, is the form of the fem. du. as found in Attic inscrr. of c. 450—320 B.C.: cp. Ant. 769 n. But as to the partic., the dual forms in “-α, -αιν”, and those in “-ε, -οιν”, seem to have been used concurrently (cp. 1676 n.): I have not, therefore, changed “οὔσαιν” to “ὄντοιν” with Nauck.
