ὅστις, causal. It is needless to read “δρᾶν μ̓”. See on O. C. 263“κἄμοιγε ποῦ ταῦτ᾽ ἐστίν; οἵτινες κ.τ.λ.” (i.e. “ἐπεὶ ὑμεῖς”). μισεῖ δέ μ̓: the relative clause passes into an independent sentence; see appendix on O. C. 424.— πεδία: for the tribrach in the 5th foot, consisting of a single word, cp. O. T. 719“ἄβατον ὄρος” (n.), ib. 1496 “πατέρα πατήρ”.
