εὐφημίαν refers to the ominous “ἐστερημένην”: cp. Ai.361 f. “ΑΙ....ἀλλά με συνδάϊξον”. | “ΧΟ. εὔφημα φώνει.—καταστεφῆ”, with a wreath of laurel: cp. O. T.83 n.

πρὸς χαρὰν λόγων refers to “καταστεφῆ”: ‘in view of (suitably to) joyous news.’ Brunck's reading, “πρὸς χάριν λόγων”, would be weaker (‘on account of his tidings’).
