Ajax enters from the tent, carrying the heavy, blood-stained thong, with which he has been scourging the cattle (241 f.). Hence the title “μαστιγοφόρος” (see Argument to the Play). Διογενὲς τέκνον: cp. Aesch. Th. 127“ὦ Διογενὲς φιλόμαχον κράτος” (Athena): Eur. Cycl. 350“ὦ Παλλάς, ὦ δέσποινα, Διογενὲς θεά”. Cp. Eur. Ion 465“παῖς ἁ Λατογενής”.
