ποίῳ σὺν ἔργῳ, on the warrant of what deed,—since “λυπηθεὶς ἔσει” implies that something has already been done to cause the pain which will soon be felt. σὺν has the same force as in “σὺν θεῷ”:— “"with what deed to support the threat."” Cp. O. T. 656 “ἐν αἰτίᾳ ι σὺν ἀφανεῖ λόγῳ … βαλεῖν”, to accuse one with the help of an unproved story. Xen. sometimes has “σύν” thus where a simple instrum. dat. would suffice: An. 3. 1. 22 “ἰέναι ἐπὶ τὸν ἀγῶνα πολὺ σὺν φρονήματι μείζονι”: 3. 2. 8 “εἰ...διανοούμεθα σὺν τοῖς ὅπλοις...δίκην ἐπιθεῖναι αὐτοῖς.” ἀπειλήσας ἔχεις=a perf.: cp. O. T. 577 n.
