φεῦ τῆς ἀνοίας ὥς “κ.τ.λ.” This punctuation is recommended by the order of the words: cp. Eur. Phoen. 1425“φεῦ φεῦ κακῶν σῶν, Οἰδίπου, σ᾽ ὅσον στένω”. Others place a comma after “φεῦ”, and take “τῆς ἀνοίας” with “ἐποικτίρω”: but in the passages which might seem similar the verb precedes the gen., as Aesch. P. V. 397“στένω σε τᾶς οὐλομένας τύχας”: Aesch. Ag. 1321“οἰκτίρω σε θεσφάτου μόρου”.
