πιθοῦ λεγούσῃ: cp. El.1207“πιθοῦ λέγοντι, κοὐχ ἁμαρτήσει ποτέ”. The aor. imper.=‘obey her,’—‘do the thing which she urges’: while πείθου would mean rather, ‘be persuaded’: cp. O. C.1181 n. Here the context seems slightly in favour of πιθοῦ, though the pres. is also quite admissible. γυναικὶ τῇδε: this simple dat. of the pers. with “μέμφομαι”, though not very rare, is less frequent than either (1) “μέμφομαί τινα”, El.383 f., or (2) “μέμφομαί τινί τι”.
