μή τοι θυραίαν γ̓: “τοι” (Lat. sane） here limits with an ironical force, while “γε” lays stress on the adj. The combination “μή τοί...γε” occurs also in O. C. 1407, Ai. 472: “μή τοι”, without “γε”, in O. C. 1439, Ant. 544. αἰσχύνειν φίλους: said from an Athenian point of view (on Ant. 578). The Homeric maiden of noble birth, such as Nausicaa, has more freedom.
