εἰς ἅπαντας: cp. O.T. 93 “ἐς πάντας αὔδα” (n.).

χρῇς. As to the forms “χρῇς, χρῇ”, see on Ant. 887εἴτε χρῇ θανεῖν” | “εἴτ᾽ ἐν τοιαύτῃ ζῶσα τυμβεύειν στέγῃ”,—where “ζῶσα” excludes “χρή”. Here, as in Ai. 1373(“σοὶ δὲ δρᾶν ἔξεσθ᾽ χρῇς”), “χρὴ” is possible, but certainly less natural than a verb in the 2nd person.

στόμαργον. It is probable that “στόμαργος” was only another form of “στόμαλγος”, which is not found; though “στομαλγία” was preferred to “στομαργία”, as “γλωσσαλγία” to “γλωσσαργία”. Both “γλώσσαλγος” and “γλώσσαργος” occur in later Greek.
