ἐν τοῖς τοιούτοιςκ.τ.λ.” These words of the Chorus, though neutral in tone (like their words at v. 369), imply that Electra's plan is over-bold, and Chrys. speaks as if sure of their approval; which, indeed, she receives at v. 1015.— καὶ κλύοντι: for the omission of the art., cp. 1498: Aesch. Ag. 324τῶν ἁλόντων καὶ κρατησάντων”: and n. on Soph. O. C. 606.σύμμαχος here merely=“σύμφορος”, helpful. The figurative sense of the word is usually closer to the literal; as in Antiphon or. 5 § 43τὸ εἰκὸς σύμμαχόν μοί ἐστιν” (‘is on my side’).

993 For the place of μὴ, cp. Ph. 66εἰ δ᾽ ἐργάσει” | “μὴ ταῦτα” (n.).

ἐσῴζετ̓, ‘remembered’: Tr. 682 n.
