τοιούτων, ‘so foolish,’ referring to “τοὺς ἀνοήτους”: cp. 218, 251, 562, 929.

ἀπαλέξασθαι: this form is quoted by Hesychius from the poet's lost Hipponoos ( Soph. fr. 282). In Soph. O. T. 171ἀλέξεται” is a fut.: which, like this aor., seems to come from a stem “ἀλεκ” rather than from “ἀλεξ” (whence the pres. “ἀλέξω”): see n. there.
