λέγω, subj.: cp. Ant. 1341οὐδ᾽ ἔχω” | “πρὸς πότερον ἴδω”.

ἀνακλαίομαι, lament aloud. Antiphon “α. δ”. § 1 “τὰς...ἀτυχίας ἀνακλαύσασθαι πρὸς ὑμᾶς.

παροῦσι, present with me as ye are, τοῖς εἰωθόσιν (“παρεῖναι”), ye, who are wont to be so. In freely rendering these words, ‘my wonted companions,’ we must remember that παροῦσι is not a subst. (like “θεαταῖς” or “μάρτυσι”): i.e., we could not say, “οἱ εἰωθότες παρόντες”, meaning, ‘my wonted companions.’ That would be possible only if “παρών” had acquired a definitely substantival use (like “ἄρχων”). Thus in Thuc. 7. 75οἱ ζῶντες καταλειπόμενοι” is not ‘the living remnant,’ but ‘those who were left behind alive’ (“ζῶντες κατελείποντο”).
