ὁποῖα δραστἔ ἐστίν, sc. “εἶπον”. The reply passes over “εἴργασαι”, and refers to “εἶπας”: cp. 423, where “πολλοῖσιν ἀστῶν” answers the earlier of two queries. εἰ δὲ μή, sc. “δράσεις.—γεν<*>ῦ”, ‘become’, as if by adoption (“εἰσποίησις”) into another family. Cp. Lys. or. 13 § 91 “τόν τε γόνῳ πατέρα...τόν τε ποιητὸν πατέρα”. So Oedipus to Polyneices, O.C. 1383 “σὺ δ᾽ ἔρρ᾽ ἀπόπτυστός τε κἀπάτωρ ἐμοῦ”.
