εἰ δ᾽ οἶκτον ἴσχεις, if thou hast no heart to do that. It would be easy, but it is needless, to read εἰ δ᾽ οἶκτος ἴσχει ς᾿.

ἀλλά, ‘at least’: 201 n.— αὐτοῦ ‘just here’ ( O. C.78ἐνθάδ᾽ αὐτοῦ”).

θάνω: the prohibitive subj. is rare in the 1st pers.; but cp. O. C.174(n.): Eur. Tro.172(“μὴ”) “ἀλγυνθῶ”.
