Ph. 360“ἐπεὶ ᾿δάκρυσα κεῖνον.” ἡδονὴν φέρει: lit., ‘as much as my inclination makes it pleasant (to weep).’ “φέρειν ἡδ”.=‘to afford pleasure’ (but “ἔχειν”, ‘to feel’ it): O. C. 779“ὅτ᾽ οὐδὲν ἡ χάρις χάριν φέροι”: O. T. 1094“ἐπὶ ἦρα φέροντα”. For “θυμός”, cp. Her. 8. 116“ἢ ἄλλως σφι θυμὸς ἐγένετο θεήσασθαι τὸν πόλεμον”.
