ἔρρωγεν παγὰ δακρύων: cp. 919: Ant.802“ἴσχειν δ̓” | “οὐκέτι πηγὰς δύναμαι δακρύων”. The natural sense is, ‘The stream of tears has burst forth’; i.e., ‘we all weep for this calamity.’ The words could not well mean merely, ‘a source of tears has been opened’; i.e., a woe has befallen, which will claim tears.
