θανόντες … ἀφαιρείσθων. The grim irony is like that of O. T. 1273 f. “ἐν σκότῳ”.. | “ὀψοίαθ̓”: O. C. 1377(they are to die) “ἵν᾽ ἀξιῶτον τοὺς φυτεύσαντας σέβειν”: Ant. 310(after a like threat) “ἵν᾽ εἰδότες τὸ κέρδος ἔνθεν οἰστέον ι τὸ λοιπὸν ἁρπάζητε”: Tr. 1110(Deianeira shall perish) “ἵν᾽ ἐκδιδαχθῇ πᾶσιν ἀγγέλλειν κ.τ.λ.” τἄμ̓, emphatic: the arms which, when Achilles was dead, belonged by right to Ajax. Schol.: “καλῶς τὰ ἐμὰ ἔφη, οὐχ ἃ δεῖ με λαβεῖν, ὡς ἰδίων ἀπεστερημένος”.
