τούτων, neut., causal gen. (O. T. 48). After “τήνδε γ᾽”, this is better than “ταύτην” would be: “τοιγάρτοι” (whether with “καί” or with “νιν”) would be unpleasing. κλαύμαθ᾽: cp. 754: so Ph. 1260“ἐκτὸς κλαυμάτων.” ὕπερ = ἕνεκα (O. T. 165 n.). “οἴμοι” follows, but the change of person excuses the breach of synapheia: so O. C. 139 “τὸ φατιζόμενον” is followed by “ἰώ”, and ib. 143 “πρέσβυς” by “οὐ”.
