σοι, ethic dat.:

τοιαῦτά σοι ταῦτ᾽ ἐστίν, ὡς μὲν ἐν λόγῳ
ἀλγεινά, κ.τ.λ.

λόγοις, "story," legend, generally, but esp. poetry, in which Colonus had not yet figured: the Iliad (23. 679) buries Oedipus at Thebes: cp. Paus. 1.30.4 (of the Oedipus-myth at Colonus) “διάφορα μὲν καὶ ταῦτα τῇ Ὁμήρου ποιήσει”.
