πρὸς θυρῶνος ἐξόδοις, close to the thoroughfare of the “θυρών” or vestibule ( O. T. 1242): cp. Aesch. Th. 33πυλῶν ἐπ᾽ ἐξόδοις”. These words go with φωνεῖς, while ἐλθοῦσα emphasises her boldness in seeking such publicity. As αὖ implies, she has often done so before; cp. 517ὅς σ᾽ ἐπεῖχ᾽ ἀεὶ” | “μή τοι θυραίαν γ᾽ οὖσαν αἰσχύνειν φίλους”.

330 For the absence of caesura, cp. Ph. 101 n.
