Oed. replies to their second question by ἀπόπτολις, which is almost an exclamation; — "I have no πατρίς now": he deprecates their first question (τίς ἄγει;) altogether. Cp. Aesch. Ag. 1410 (the Argive elders to Clytaemnestra) “ἀπόπολις δ᾽ ἔσει, μῖσος ὄβριμον ἀστοῖς”. Soph. has ἀπόπτολις in O. T. 1000 (dialogue) and Tr. 647 (lyr.). Cp. 1357.
