ἔμοιγε is placed as if it were to be common to both the clauses (“οὔτε... τε”), but the constr. changes: cp. El. 913 “ἀλλ᾽ οὐδὲ μὲν δὴ μητρὸς οὔθ᾽ ὁ νοῦς φιλεῖ ι τοιαῦτα πράσσειν οὔτε δρῶσ᾽ ἐλάνθανεν”.— For οὔτε followed by τε cp. O. C. 1397 (n.). οὐδαμά, neut. plur. adv.: this form is required by metre in 830, as “οὐδαμᾷ” (Doric) in 874: L always gives “οὐδαμᾶι”: see on O. C. 1104. ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς, with them (the instrumental “ἐν”, 962, 1003, 1201): an epic phrase, Il. 1.587 “ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖσιν ἴδωμαι”, etc.: so oft. “ἐν ὄμμασιν” (Tr. 241).
