καὶ σοὶ, to thee also (as I myself have seen it): cp. Plat. Phaed. 64 C “ἐὰν ἄρα καὶ σοὶ ξυνδοκῇ ἅπερ καὶ ἐμοί”. Seyffert writes “καί σοι” (as if the sense were, ‘I will further show thee’): but this is plainly wrong. δείξω … περιφανῆ, ‘will show thee openly’ (instead of allowing it to remain hidden in the tent): cp. El. 1366“αἳ ταῦτά σοι δείξουσιν, Ἠλέκτρα, σαφῆ”. Cp. 81 “περιφανῶς..ἰδεῖν”.—We might, indeed, take “περιφανῆ” as a mere epithet, ‘this signal, notable, frenzy’; but in the actual context the other view is preferable. θροῇς, ‘proclaim’: cp. 785: O. C. 597“πᾶς τοῦτό γ᾽ Ἑλλήνων θροεῖ”.
