ἀνθ᾽ ὧν here=“ἀντὶ τούτων ὅτι”, ‘because’: so Plut. 434. The phrase more often means ‘wherefore’ (O. C. 1295): cp. O. T. 264 n.

ἔχεις βαλὼν κάτω τῶν ἄνω (“τινά”), thou hast thrust to the grave (one) of the living. For the omission of “τις” after the partitive gen., cp. El. 1322κλύω τῶν ἔνδοθεν χωροῦντος”.
