τάλας … τλήμων, nom., not voc., because each is rather a comment (‘hapless that thou art!’) than properly an address: so O. C. 185 “ὦ τλάμων”, ib. 753 “ὦ τάλας ἐγώ”, Eur. Med. 61 “ὦ μῶρος.” μένεις is better than μενεῖς, since, ‘are you tarrying again?’ (his halts having been frequent, 225) is more graphic than, ‘will you tarry again?’— αὖ cannot mean here, ‘on the contrary’ (i.e. instead of going on). πῶς … οὐκ, as O. T. 937, 976, etc. ἀλγυνεῖ, pass.: cp. on 93 “ἐχθαρεῖ”.
