ἦ δεινὸν: cp. Ant. 323“ἦ δεινόν, ᾦ δοκεῖ γε, καὶ ψευδῆ δοκεῖν.” εὖ λέγουσαν, because the sentiment expressed by Chrysothemis is sound in itself: ἐξαμαρτάνειν, because Chrysothemis assumes that true wisdom is now upon her own side, and not upon Electra's. [Not: ‘It is sad that I should speak aright and yet miss my aim,’—produce no result.]
