σὺ δέ, Electra.

εἴ που κατ᾽ οἶκόν μοι. The words mean properly, ‘if she is anywhere in the house for me,’ i.e., ‘so that I can see her.’ The enclitic μοι, thus placed, could not go with κάλει, as it does in Tr. 1147κάλει τὸ πᾶν μοι σπέρμα σῶν ὁμαιμόνων”. A translation, however, need not mark this.
