αὐτόχειρί μοι. The older editions (including Brunck's) have the adverb “αὐτοχειρί” (Lycurgus § 122). Porson restored the adj. here, and (with the Ald.) in Eur. Or. 1040“ἀλλ᾽ αὐτόχειρι θνῄσχ᾽ ὅτῳ βούλει τρόπῳ.” μόνῃ τε: contrast Tr. 1194“αὐτόχειρα καὶ ξὺν οἷς χρῄζεις φίλων.” οὐ γὰρ δὴ rejects the alternative which γε emphasises, as in O. C. 110, O. C. 265, Ph. 246. κενόν, ‘void,’ since “τοὔργον τόδ̓” refers to what is still only a project.
