λόγοισι γενναία, noble in her professions (though not in her deeds), inasmuch as she claimed to be the instrument of heaven in avenging her daughter: “ γὰρ Δίκη νιν εἷλεν, οὐκ ἐγὼ μόνη” (528). The Aeschylean Clytaemnestra speaks in the same lofty strain ( Ag. 1431 ff.).— Others understand, ‘this so-called noble woman,’ as if “λόγοισι” denoted words said of (not by) her.
