φέροντα=φερόμενον: O. T. 590 “πάντ᾽ ἄνευ φόβου φέρω”: cp. 1411. καὶ τόδ̓. As καὶ οὖτος (like et is, isque), or καὶ ταῦτα, introduces a strengthening circumstance ( Her. 6. 11 “εἶναι δούλοισι, καὶ τούτοισι ὡς δρηπέτῃσι”), so here καὶ τόδε marks the last step of a climax. Some edd. point thus, φέροντα: taking ἐξαρκοῦν as=ἐξαρκεῖ, "and that suffices me": but this (a) supposes a very harsh ellipse of ἐστί, (b) maims the rhythm, (c) weakens the force of the series σμικρὸν—μεῖον—ἐξαρκοῦν. ἐμοί after Οἰδίπουν: cp. 1329: as O.T. 535 “τῆς ἐμῆς” after τοῦδε τἀνδρός (like Tr. 1073 f.): Ai. 865 “μυθήσομαι” after Αἴας θροεῖ: Plat. Euthyphro 5 A “οὐδέ τῳ ἂν διαφέροι Εὐθύφρων τῶν πολλῶν...εἰ μὴ εἰδείην”.
