τραφεὶς = “εἰ ἐτράφης.— μητρὸςἄπο”: “ἐκ” is usu. said of parents, “ἀπό” (as in 202) of ancestors; but cp. O.C. 571 “κἀφ᾽ ὅτου πατρὸς γεγώς”. ( Ant. 192 f., n.)

ὑψήλ᾽ ἐφώνεις is a choicer phrase, and marks the irony better, than the v.l.ὑψήλ᾽ ἐκόμπεις.

κἀπ᾽ ἄκρων ὡδοιπόρεις: schol. “ἐπ᾽ ἄκρων δακτύλων ἔβαινες γαυριῶν”. Eur. Ion 1166 f. “ἐν δ᾽ ἄκροισι βὰς ποσὶν κῆρυξ ἀνεῖπε” (describing the proud gait of the herald). Lobeck compares Libanius 4. 162 “ἐπ᾽ ἄκρων πορεύεσθαι”, and “ἀκροβατεῖν” ‘to strut’ in Philo De Somn. 1. 60.
