οἴκτιρε..εἰ κ.τ.λ. A clause with “εἰ” and fut. indic. often denotes an object of pity or indignation ( El. 1210, Ph. 988). Cp. Lys. or. 13 § 15οὐκ ἐλεοῦντες..τὰ τείχη, εἰ πεσεῖται, οὐδὲ κηδόμενοι τῶν νεῶν, εἰ..παραδοθήσονται.— νέας τροφῆς”, the nurture suitable to the young: O. C. 345ἐξ ὅτου νέας τροφῆς ἔληξε” (n.).

διοίσεται, sc.βίον”, ‘pass his life’: schol. “διάξει, βιώσεται”. The midd. has this absolute sense in Hippocr. De artic. p. 823 “ὑγιηροὶ τἄλλα..διαφέρονται” (‘they pass through life’): Xen. Mem. 2. 1. 24σκοπούμενος διοίσει” (a correction of “διέσῃ”). We find also “διαφέρειν βίον” or “αἰῶνα” ( Her. 3. 40, Helen. 10), or “διαφέρειν” only ([Eur. ] Rhes. 982).—Others explain “διοίσεται” as pass., diripietur, ‘(if) he shall be plundered.’ In this sense the usual word is “διαφορεῖν”, though Eur. Bacch. 754 has “διέφερον” in a kindred sense, and Arist. Poet. 8§ 4 the pass. “διαφέρεσθαι”: but such a meaning, which would fix attention on the boy's property, is utterly out of place here. [Lobeck, and Blaydes after him, cite Dion or. 41 p. 506 C “ὑπ᾽ ὀρφανιστῶν διασπασθήσεται”: but the correct reference is or. 43 p. 506 C, and the words, “ὑπὸ τῶν συγγενῶν καὶ ἐπιτρόπων διασπασθῆναι”.]— σοῦμόνος: cp. Soph. O. C. 1250ἀνδρῶν γε μοῦνος”: Eur. Med. 52σοῦ μόνη”.
