The constr. is “αὗται δὲ ἐξ ἐμοῦ δύο μὲν παῖδε, δύο δ᾽ ἄτα … ἀπέβλαστον” etc. ἐξ ἐμοῦ, sprung from me: no partic. need be supplied, since the verb “ἀπέβλ”. follows: cp. 250 “ὅ 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. αὗται … παῖδε: cp. Plat. Laches p. 187 A “αὐτοὶ εὑρεταὶ γεγονότε”.
