δίχ̓, like ἄνευ or χωρίς, "without the sanction of":

καὶ δίχα

, “"e'en without the gods' help."” Nauck objects to the position: but not less bold, at least, is

ποτ᾽ ἄλλος


οὐχ ὅσον τάχος
δῆτ᾽ αὐτὸν ἄξεις …;

ἐνδείξω τί δρῶ, indicate what I am doing: δρῶ is pres. indic.: Plat. Gorg. 488Aἱκανῶς μοι ἔνδειξαι τί ἔστι τοῦτο”. Antiphon or. 6 § 37ἐνδεῖξαι τῷ δικαστηρίῳ τὰ ἀδικήματα”. The technical ἔνδειξις was an information laid against usurpers of public functions, or, in certain cases, against κακοῦργοι. Schneidewin and Wecklein take δρῶ as subjunct., understanding, —"report the matter (and ask) what I am to do": but the idea of asking could not be supplied.
