The constr. is “αὗται δὲ ἐξ ἐμοῦ δύο μὲν παῖδε, δύο δ᾽ ἄταἀπέβλαστον” etc.

ἐξ ἐμοῦ, sprung from me: no partic. need be supplied, since the verb “ἀπέβλ”. follows: cp. 250 “ τι σοι φίλον ἐκ σέθεν” (sc.ἐστί”). The cry with which the Chorus interrupts him (πῶς φής;) marks their perception (from his first words “αὗται δέ” etc.) that the children of that marriage were before them.

αὗταιπαῖδε: cp. Plat. Laches p. 187 Aαὐτοὶ εὑρεταὶ γεγονότε”.
