ἀδάκρυτον, predicate, with proleptic force: no friend mourns my fate, (and so it remains) unwept. Soph. has several instances of the predicative adj. thus added to a subst. which has the art. and possessive pron.; as O. T. 671 “τὸ γὰρ σόν, οὐ τὸ τοῦδ᾽, ἐποικτίρω στόμα ι ἐλεινόν” (n.): El. 1143 “τῆς ἐμῆς πάλαι τροφῆς ι ἀνωφελήτου”. Cp. 791.
