σοῦ δ᾽ οὐδὲν: this third clause repeats the thought of the first, “οὐ γάρ τι τῆς σῆς κ.τ.λ.”: on this trait of Sophoclean style see Ant. 465 ff. (n.). τοὺς μηδένας, those who are as nought (“μή” having its generic force),—mere ciphers. Cp. Ant. 1322“τὸν οὐκ ὄντα μᾶλλον ἢ μηδένα”. So I. A. 371 “τοὺς οὐδένας”: Andr. 700“ὄντες οὐδένες”, Her. 9. 58“οὐδένες ἄρα ἐόντες”.
