μὴ τίκτειν, since a command is implied by “αὐδῶ” here, as elsewhere by “λέγω, φωνῶ, ἐννέπω” ( Ph. 101 n.).

ἄταν ἄταις: the mere iteration suggests the notion of adding; but this is developed by the sense of the verb: cp. Helen. 195 “δάκρυα δάκρυσί μοι φέρων”: and n. on O.T. 175 “ἄλλον δ᾽ ἂν ἄλλῳ προσίδοις”.
