τί δ᾽ ἔστινπρός γ᾽ ἐμοῦ στυγού- μενον; ‘What is there, on my part, that excites hatred?’ The phrase is peculiar (since the words could mean, ‘what is hated by me?’); but, in speaking, the sense would be made clear by a very slight pause after the words πρός γ᾽ ἐμοῦ, which are naturally emphatic (cp. O. T.516).
