νυν: cp. 524. φόρει: Aristoph. Eq. 757 “λῆμα θούριον φορεῖν”: Eur. Hipp. 118 “σπλάγχνον ἔντονον φέρων”. So Shaksp. Cymb. 3. 4. 146 “‘if you could wear a mind | Dark as your fortune is’”: Caes. 5. 1. 113 “‘He bears too great a mind.’” ἦθος=a way of thinking: the inf. depends on it, as on ‘do not think.’ ὡς φὴς σύ, your way of speaking,=“ὃ σὺ φής”: cp. O. C. 1124 (n.) “καί σοι θεοὶ πόροιεν ὡς ἐγὼ θέλω.” κοὐδέν, not “καὶ μηδέν”: it is merely oratio obliqua for “ὅτι τοῦτο καὶ οὐδὲν ἄλλο ὀρθῶς ἔχει”. The imperative “μὴ...φόρει” does not affect this: cp. Ai. 1085 “καὶ μὴ δοκῶμεν δρῶντες ἃν ἡδώμεθα ι οὐκ ἀντιτίσειν αὖθις ἃν λυπώμεθα”. But “καὶ μηδέν” could also have stood here, since v. 705 could be regarded as equiv. to, ‘do not feel confident that...’: see n. on O. T. 1455. τοῦτο, antecedent to “ὡς φης”, emphatically placed: cp. O. T. 385.
