οἷσιν εἴχετ᾽ ἐν κακοῖς=“κακοῖς ἐν οἷς εἴχετο”: cp. 1144: Her. 9. 37ἐν τούτῳ τῷ κακῷ ἐχόμενος”. The antecedent “κακοῖς” is drawn into the relative clause, though here its case is not thereby affected: cp. Ant. 404θάπτουσαν ὃν σὺ τὸν νεκρὸν ἀπεῖπας”.

φρονοῦντας is far better than the v.l. βλέποντας: it hints what is meant by the vague κακοῖς.
