δεινόν γ᾽ εἶπας: for “γε” in comment, cp. El. 341“δεινόν γέ σ᾽ οὖσαν πατρὸς οὗ σὺ παῖς ἔφυς ι κείνου λελῆσθαι.” εἰ καὶ ζῇς: here “καὶ” goes closely with “ζῇς”, ‘if thou indeed livest’: so O. T. 305“εἰ καὶ μὴ κλύεις” (if indeed..): Tr. 71“εἰ καὶ τοῦτ᾽ ἔτλη”. Distinguish such instances from the ordinary uses of “εἰ καί” (‘granting that..’), as in O. T. 408“εἰ καὶ τυραννεῖς”.
