ἐγὼ is slightly emphasised by μέν (see on 11), which goes closely with it, and does not here answer to the following δέ. ἄτιμα ποιοῦμαι = ἀτιμάζω: cp. O.C. 584 “δι᾽ οὐδενὸς ποιεῖ.” τὸ δὲ ι ...δρᾶν: see on 67 “τὸ γὰρ ι ...πράσσειν”. The inf. with art. is strictly an acc. of respect (‘as for the acting..., I am incapable of it’), but is practically equiv. to the simple inf., “ἀμήχανος δρᾶν”: see n. on O. C. 47 “οὐδ᾽ ἐμοὶ...τοὐξανιστάναι... ι ...ἐστὶ θάρσος”.
