πρὸς ταῦτ̓, with a command, as often; cp. 1066, 1115: Ant. 658“πρὸς ταῦτ᾽ ἐφυμνείτω Δία ι ξύναιμον”: O. T. 426: El. 820, etc. ἐν κενοῖς, in a case where his triumphs are “κενά”, empty, unreal: cp. Tr. 1118“οὐ γὰρ ἂν γνοίης ἐν οἷς ι χαίρειν προθυμεῖ” (n.). El. 331“θυμῷ..χαρίζεσθαι κενά”. 972 f. There is no stress on αὐτοῖς as opposed to “ἐμοί”. The emphasis is on “οὐκέτ᾽ ἐστίν”, which is repeated in a negative form by “ἀλλὰ..διοίχεται” (cp. 167 n.). ‘It is all loss for them; nothing remains but the anguish which becomes my portion.’
