μῖσος: cf. Ant. 760ἄγετε τὸ μῖσος.

καὶ ἐξανευρίσκεις, ‘dost indeed invent’ (not, ‘dost invent besides,’ i.e., “πρὸς τοῖς ἔργοις”): cp. 234φεῦ τὸ καὶ λαβεῖν”: and so in a question expressing surprise, O. T. 1129ποῖον ἄνδρα καὶ λέγεις”;—The compound “ἐξανευρίσκω” (like “ἐξαφοράω” in O. C. 1648) is otherwise strange to classical Greek, but appears to have been common later: Wyttenbach, in his Index to Plutarch (p. 595), quotes eight instances of it from the Moralia. The inf. λέγειν is epexeg. (‘for thyself to say’): we cannot compare O. T. 120ἓν γὰρ πόλλ᾽ ἂν ἐξεύροι μαθεῖν” (n.). Perhaps it should be λέγων.
