ἀλλ᾽ ἴσθι τοι: so oft. in threat enings: cp. 1064: Tr. 1107ἀλλ᾽ εὖ<*> τοι τόδ᾽ ἴστε”: El. 298ἀλλ᾽ ἴσθι τοι τίσου<*> γ᾽ ἀξίαν δίκην.

πίπτειν, instead of the regular “πίπτοντα”: this inf. after “οἶδα” (as= ‘I know that...’, not, ‘I know how to...’) is not rare in poetry; cp. O. T. 691, Ph. 1329, Aesch. Pers. 173, 431, 435: so after “ἐπίσταμαι” above, 293, and 1092.
