ποῖ καταθήσεις; fig. from the payment of a debt in money. If you will not pay it here and now, to what place will you bring the payment for it? i.e. when, and in what form, can your promise of a safe refuge (176 f.) be redeemed, if I am driven from Colonus? ποῖ with a verb pregnantly used, as 476 “τὸ δ᾽ ἔνθεν ποῖ τελευτῆσαί με χρή;” to what end am I to bring it? Cp. 383. For καταθήσεις cp. Dem. In Mid. § 99 “οὐ γάρ ἐστιν ὄφλημα ὅ τι χρὴ καταθέντα ἐπίτιμον γενέσθαι τουτονί”, there is no debt (to the Treasury), by paying which he can recover the franchise. Pind. Nem. 7.75 “νικῶντί γε χάριν … οὐ τραχύς εἰμι καταθέμεν”.
