παῦε: cp. O. C. 1751 n.

ἃν εἴπῃς γε. Dobree ( II. Adv. 47) would alter γε to σὺ, comparing Eur. Bacch. 655(“σοφὸς σοφὸς σύ”), where “σύ”, lost in the MSS., was restored by Porson from Chr. Patiens 1529. But γε is right. ‘All thy words will be in vain (though I cannot resist force, if that be used).’ He knows what their “λόγοι” are worth (cp. 1268 f., 1271).
