κἀμὲ μὲνκ.τ.λ.” The chief emphasis is on the clause σοὶ δ᾽ αἰσχρὰ κ.τ.λ.: she merely glances at the results to herself; ‘while I shall suffer, thou and thine will be disgraced.’ ἐλᾷ, vexabit, as in 756; cp. also 275.

αἰσχρὰ: Ajax had said that it was “αἰσχρόν”, in such a case as his, to go on living (473). Tecmessa wishes him to feel that it would be “αἰσχρόν” to die. But Ajax believes that Teucer's care will avert the evils which she fears (562).
