οὐ σωφρονήσεις; Cp. Ph. 1259“ἐσωφρόνησας” (‘thou hast come to thy senses’). μαθὼν ὃς εἶ φύσιν, i.e. “δοῦλος”. In O.T. 1068 “μήποτε γνοίης ὃς εἶ”, and O.C. 1171 “ἔξοιδ᾽ ἀκούων τῶνδ᾽ ὅς ἐσθ᾽ ὁ προστάτης”, where “ὅς” stands, as here, for “ὅστις”, the reference is to the person's identity; here it is to his quality (=“οἷος εἶ”), as in Eur. Alc. 640“ἔδειξας εἰς ἔλεγχον ἐξελθὼν ὃς εἶ”: Plat. Euthyd. 283D “βούλεσθε γενέσθαι αὐτὸν σοφόν, ἀμαθῆ δὲ μὴ εἶναι;...οὐκοῦν ὃς μὲν οὐκ ἔστι, βούλεσθε αὐτὸν γενέσθαι, ὃς δ᾽ ἔστι νῦν, μηκέτι εἶναι”.
