τοὺς..θανόντας κ.τ.λ. This verse has been rejected (cr. n.) as a commonplace not suitable here. But it is surely one which might naturally occur in any utterance of weary despair. It closes her lament with a cadence like that which we find twice elsewhere near the end of a speech: O.C. 955 “θανεῖν: θανόντων δ᾽ οὐδὲν ἄλγος ἅπτεται”: Tr. 1173“τοῖς γὰρ θανοῦσι μόχθος οὐ προσγίγνεται”.
