τί δῆτα: i.e., why, in that case, did he attack cattle, rather than the men who had awarded the arms? ἐπεμπίπτει: cp. 185 “ἐν ποίμναις πίτνων”, and 374 f.— τήνδε … βάσιν, a cognate acc. (as if the verb were “ἐπεμβαίνει”): cp. Aesch. Pers. 305“πήδημα κοῦφον ἐκ νεὼς ἀφήλατο”. ( Soph. Tr. 339, “τοῦ με τήνδ᾽ ἐφίστασαι βάσιν”, is different: see n. there.)
