οἵαις, not οἵας, is clearly right here. “ἐλαύνειν” can take a cogn. acc. denoting the course on which one is driven, as Nub. 29 “πολλοὺς τὸν πατέρ᾽ ἐλαύνεις δρόμους”: but when it means ‘to vex’ or ‘harass,’ the troubles inflicted are expressed by the instrum. dat., as in the examples cited by Dindorf: Ai.275λύπῃ...ἐλήλαται”: Eur. Andr.31καχοῖς ἐλαύνομαι”: Eur. Ion1620ἐλαύνεται συμφοραῖς”.
