ὦ πάντες ἀστοί, said to the Chorus and the Messenger, as representing the Thebans generally. In Eur. I. T. 1422 Thoas says “ὦ πάντες ἀστοί”, not to the Chorus (of Greek women), but to the Tauri as represented by his attendants. So, too, in Aristoph. Eccl. 834 “ὦ πάντες ἀστοί” is said to an imaginary body of Athenian citizens, represented by two men on the stage. In Lys. 638 the Chorus say “ὦ πάντες ἀστοί” to the audience.
