γε μὲν δὴ: cp. Tr. 484“ἐπεί γε μὲν δὴ” (n.). Ἄρης, the warlike spirit: cp. Aesch. Ag. 78“Ἄρης δ᾽ οὐκ ἐνὶ χώρᾳ”: id. Suppl. 749 “γυνὴ μονωθεῖσ᾽ οὐδέν: οὐκ ἔνεστ᾽ Ἄρης”. εὖ δ᾽ ἔξοισθα κ.τ.λ. These words prove the genuineness of the verse (which Triclinius rejected, cr. n.): for it is this allusion to her sufferings at the hands of Clyt. that prompts Electra's reply.
