κρῖνε = ἀνάκρινε, question: Ai. 586μὴ κρῖνε, μὴ 'ξέταζε.

δίκαιός εἰμι: the only certain instance in Tragedy of the personal constr. ( Thuc. 1.40δίκαιοί γ᾽ ἐστε...ἰέναι”); for in Eur. Hipp. 1080πολλῷ γε μᾶλλον σαυτὸν ἤσκησας σέβειν τοὺς τεκόντας ὅσια δρᾶν, δίκαιος ὤν”, the latter words are more pointed if ironical (‘just man though thou art’): and Aesch. Eum. 55καὶ κόσμος οὔτε πρὸς θεῶν ἀγάλματα φέρειν δίκαιος” is different (‘proper to bring’). But Ar. has this use, Nub. 1283ἀπολαβεῖν...δίκαιος εἶ”, and ib. 1434.

ἀπηλλάχθαι, perf., for good and all: O. T. 1050.
