σφῷν δ᾽ ἐννέπω γε: ‘And further’ (γε, i.e. besides counselling Electra), ‘I tell you,’ etc.: cp. Ai. 1150ἐγὼ δέ γ᾽ ἄνδρ᾽ ὄπωπα κ.τ.λ.”: Eur. Or. 1236ἐγὼ δέ γ᾽ ἐπεκέλευσα”. (This is better than to take “γε” as emphasising “ἐννέπω” only; ‘I warn you,’—whether you will heed me or not.) Hermann's conjecture, “ἐννέπω ᾿γὼ”, is no improvement.
