κεῖνοι δ̓: for the resumptive “δέ”, cp. 252.

ὑπερχλίοντες: this form, attested by the first hand in L and by the schol. (cr. n.), is confirmed by the fact that Aesch. twice uses “χλίειν” with ref. to insolent triumph. Aesch. Cho.137ἐν τοῖσι σοῖς πόνοισι χλίουσιν μέγα”: Aesch. Suppl.914κάρβανος ὢν δ᾽ Ἕλλησιν ἐγχλίεις ἄγαν”. The compound with “ὑπέρ” does not occur elsewhere.

ἐκ γλώσσης κακῆς: here “ἐκ” is virtually ‘with’: cp. 875: O. T.528ἐξ ὀμμάτων ὀρθῶν κ.τ.λ.” (n.): O. C.486ἐξ εὐμενῶν” | “στέρνων δέχεσθαι”. This is better than to take “ἐκ” as=‘in consequence of.’

282 For αὐτοὶ μὲν after κεῖνοι and before πόλις δὲ, cp. O. C.1008κλέψας... ἐμὲ” | “αὐτόν τ᾽ ἐχειροῦ τὰς κόρας τ᾽ οἴχει λαβών”: and ib. 462 (n.).

οἰκήτορες: 1161: Ai.517Ἅιδου θανασίμους οἰκήτορας”.
