οὐ φήμ̓.

ἐγὼ δὲ φημί. So Gernhard. The MSS. have “οὔ φημ᾽ ἔγωγε.—φημί”. Now, “φημί” could stand thus alone, if it were the answer to a question, “φὴς οὐ φής”; but not here, where two persons are opposed to each other. Cp. O. C. 840ΧΟ. χαλᾶν λέγω σοι. ΚΡ. σοὶ δ᾽ ἔγωγ᾽ ὁδοιπορεῖν.

πειστέον τάδε=“δεῖ πείθεσθαι τάδε”. Cp. 1252.
