ὦ Ζεῦ: the hero's utterance begins,—as the play ends,—with his father's name. τοῖσι=“τίσι”, contracted from the Ionic “τέοισι” ( Her.1. 37). πεπονημένος: cp. Aeschin. or. 2 § 36 “τὸν δῆμον καταπεπονημένον” (‘exhausted’). ἀλλήκτοις, the regular form of this epic word: “ἄληκτος” is very rare (C. I. G. 6303). For the “λλ”, cp. Od.12. 224“ἀπολλήξειαν”.
