εἰς τόδ᾽ ἐξελθ. ἀνόσιον στόμα, having gone to such lengths of impious speech, i.e. having outraged the most sacred ties of kinship by these public taunts. Cp. 438 “ἐκδραμόντα” (n.).

ἀνόσιον στόμα agrees with τόδ᾽, depending on εἰς. Since στόμα was familiar to poetry in the sense of “λόγος” (cp. O. T. 426), this version is clearly preferable to taking εἰς τόδ᾽ separately and ἀνός. στ. as accus. of respect.
