εὐσέβειανοἴσει: cp. Ant. 924τὴν δυσσέβειαν εὐσεβοῦσ᾽ ἐκτησάμην” (n.): and for “οἴσει..ἐκ”, Tr. 461κοὔπω τις αὐτῶν ἔκ γ᾽ ἐμοῦ λόγον κακὸν” | “ἠνέγκατ᾽ οὐδ᾽ ὄνειδος”.—As θανόντος here denotes the state of the dead, and not the act of dying, κάτω can be joined to it; though it would have been clearer if the art. had been added, as in Eur. Or. 674τὸν κατὰ χθονὸς” | “θανόντ᾽ ἀκούειν τάδε δόκει”.

970 ff. The compound ἐξέφυς implies the stock from which she sprang, as in O. T. 1084τοιόσδε δ᾽ ἐκφύς”, ‘such being my lineage.’ It is usu. joined with a genitive.

καλεῖ: this fut. midd. (used by Nub. 1221 and Eccl. 864) seems to occur only here in a pass. sense; the fut. pass. is usu. “κεκλήσομαι”, more rarely “κληθήσομαι.

τὰ χρηστὰ=“τὰς χρηστάς”: cp. 1507: Ph. 448τὰ μὲν πανοῦργα καὶ παλιντριβῆ...τὰ δὲ” | “δίκαια καὶ τὰ χρηστά”. With “ὁρᾶν πρός τι”, cp. Alcib. I. p. 134 D “εἰς τὸ θεῖον καὶ λαμπρὸν ὁρῶντες”.
