λόγων γε μὴν εὔκλειαν, lit., ‘as to fame, however,’ “γε μήν” merely marking that the speaker turns to a new point. (Not, ‘as to fame, at all events,’—i.e., even if the other rewards are not won.) Cp. O. C. 587ὅρα γε μήν”,—the only other instance of “γε μήν” in Sophocles. λόγων implies a contrast with “ἔργα”,—i.e., the substantial gains mentioned in 971 f.
