οὐδὲ goes with “θῦσαι”. For the aor. inf., implying, ‘to complete the sacrifice,’ cp. 532, 285.

ὑπ᾽ εὐφήμου βοῆς, ‘with hushed clamour,’ i.e., in silence. In Ar. Av. 959εὐφημἴ ἔστω” is the notice that the sacrifice is going to begin: see on Soph. Ph. 8 ff. For “ὑπό”, denoting the accompaniment, cp. 711, Tr. 419(n.).

ἐπειδὴ σοί γ̓: “γε” necessarily emphasises “σοί”: thus arranged, the words could not mean, “ἐπειδή γέ σοι”. She means, ‘after giving you leave to say what you would, am I to meet with no forbearance?’

πᾶν λέγειν: Plat. Apol. 39Aἐάν τις τολμᾷ πᾶν ποιεῖν καὶ λέγειν”.
