θεοὶ πατρῷοι, the gods of the Pelopid house: see on O. C. 756“πρὸς θεῶν πατρῴων”: and for the synizesis in “θεοί”, also ib. 964 n. συγγένεσθέ γ̓: cp. O. T. 275“εὖ ξυνεῖεν εἰσαεὶ θεοί”: Aesch. Ch. 460(the Chorus invoking Agamemnon) “ξὺν δὲ γενοῦ πρὸς ἐχθρούς”. For “γε”, cp. 345 n. ἀλλὰ νῦν, ‘now at least,’—though not sooner. Cp. O. C. 1276“πειράσατ᾽ ἀλλ᾽ ὑμεῖς γε” (n.). She hails the dream as a sign from the nether world that vengeance is imminent, and invokes the gods of her house to co-operate with the “χθόνιοι”.
