[418] ἔπλεο: thou art, lit. thou becamest by decree of fate ordered at thy birth; cf. “ἐνὶ φρεσὶ τοῦτο νόημα ἔπλετοthis thought came into thy mind Od. 2.363 f.

τῷ: therefore; she infers from the foregoing, not the fact but the justification of the expressions “αἰνὰ τεκοῦσα, κακῇ αἴσῃ”.

κάκῃ αἴσῃ: to an evil lot, as 5.209; cf. “ἄνδρα θνητὸν ἐόντα, πάλαι πεπρωμένον αἴσῃ Π 441, ἰῇ ἄρα γεινόμεθ̓ αἴσῃ Χ” 477.
