μεῖζον ἢ κατ᾽ ἄνδρα is said in answer to their hint of fear:—let his passion touch the human limit, aye, or overpass it. O. C. 598 “τί γὰρ τὸ μεῖζον ἢ κατ᾽ ἄνθρωπον νοσεῖς”; For “ἀνήρ ῀ ἄνθρωπος”, ib. 567. ἰών: Ph. 351“εἰ τἀπὶ Τροίᾳ πέργαμ᾽” “αἱρήσοιμ᾽ ἰών”: Ai. 304 “ὅσην κατ᾽ αὐτῶν ὕβριν ἐκτίσαιτ᾽ ἰών”. So here it scornfully suggests some daring enterprise.
