ἄνευ here = “χωρίς”, as in O. T.1464“ἄνευ τοῦδ᾽ ἀνδρός.—οὕστινάς τ̓”: the τ̓ is placed as if μάθῃς were to serve for both clauses: but, in the form which the sentence actually takes, this “τε” properly belongs to μάθῃς, and the second “τε” to ἐκμάθῃς. (Cp. Ph.1415“τὰ Διός τε φράσων βουλεύματά σοι”, | “κατερητύσων θ᾽ ὁδὸν ἣν στέλλει”.) For the simple verb followed by the compound, cp. O. T.566 f. “ἔσχετε —παρέσχομεν”: Ph.249 f. “οἶσθα—κάτοιδ̓”. —The masc. plur. οὕστινας alludes to Iolè: cp. O. T.366“σὺν τοῖς φιλτάτοις” (Iocasta). ὧν τ᾽ οὐδὲν εἰσήκουσας: her relations with Heracles. The first clause corresponds with the information which the speaker gives in vv. 379 ff.; the second, with that which he gives in vv. 351 ff.
