ἀνέξομαι “κ.τ.λ.”: ‘I will listen patiently also when you commend me (as I now listen to your taunts),’—i.e., ‘when, taught by bitter experience, you recognise the wisdom of my advice’: cp. 1044. The point of “ἀνέξομαι” is that it will be a trial of patience—not less than that of being reproached with “δειλία”—to hear Electra's acknowledgments and regrets when her rash attempt has failed.
