δὔ οὖσαι, both of us: O. T.1505“ὀλώλαμεν δὔ ὄντε” (n.). μιᾶς ὑπὸ χλαίνης: Eur. fr. 606 “ὅταν δ᾽ ὑπ᾽ ἀνδρὸς χλαῖναν εὐγενοῦς πέσῃς”: Theocr. 18. 19 “Ζανός τοι θυγάτηρ ὑπὸ τὰν μίαν ᾤχετο χλαῖναν” (shared the bed of Menelaus). For “ὑπό” with gen. in this sense, cp. Soph. Ant.65 n. ὑπαγκάλισμα: Ant.650 n. Mr Murray S. has shown me a curious illustration of this passage. A vase of the 6th cent. B.C., now in the British Museum, depicts two women under the same “χλαῖνα”,—a symbolical representation, perhaps, of a common grief.
