ἀνειμένη is emphasised by μέν, which has no corresponding “δέ”: the implied antithesis is, “ἐπέχειν δέ σε ἐγὼ μόνη οὐ δύναμαι” (519 f.). Cp. Ant. 578“ἐκ δὲ τοῦδε χρὴ” | “γυναῖκας εἶναι τάσδε μηδ᾽ ἀνειμένας”, where see n. ὡς ἔοικας: Tr. 1241 n. στρέφει, versaris, go about (instead of remaining in the seclusion of the “γυναικωνῖτις”): cp. H. 6. 4. 16 “ἐν τῷ φανερῷ ἀναστρεφομένους”. Tr. 907“ἄλλῃ δὲ κἄλλῃ δωμάτων στρωφωμένη”. The simple “στρέφομαι” is very rarely so used; but cp. Solon fr. 4. 23 “ταῦτα μὲν ἐν δήμῳ στρέφεται κακά”. Clytaemnestra begins in the same strain as Chrysothemis, who likewise emphasised her reproof by the word αὖ (328).
