ἀλλ᾽ εὖ λέγουσι. If it is not easy for a king to see his course of duty clearly, he can at least pay regard to his friends, when they offer good advice; as Haemon says to Creon, “καὶ τῶν λεγόντων εὖ καλὸν τὸ μανθάνειν” ( Ant. 723).

τιμὰς νέμειν: for the plur., cp. El. 355τῷ τεθνηκότι τιμὰς προσάπτειν” (where the sense is simply ‘to honour,’ not, ‘to render rites’).
