and [sc. also attested is the nominative singular] r(iph/: a whirlwind.[1]
Electra says about [sc. her father] Agamemnon:[2] "but I will never cease from lamentations and wretched wailings, as long as I can see the brilliant flashings of the stars; and I see this day, like some child-destroying nightingale before these paternal doors with cries to utter a sound to all." The sense [is]: but I will not cease from lamentations either day or night, groaning, as long as I can see night and daylight, so as not in the manner of the nightingale to utter a sound of the lamentations before my father's doors.[3]

[1] The primary headword is accusative plural of r(iph/ (cf. rho 180), from the quotation which follows. Likewise in the Synagoge (rho38) and Photius (rho125 Theodoridis), though they -- like Suda mss AFV, Adler reports -- lack lack the secondary headword, kai\ r(iph/.
[2] For Agamemnon see generally alpha 140.
[3] An approximation of Sophocles, Electra 103-109 (web address 1), with scholion. The scholiast seems confused about mh\ ou) after a negative verb: Electra will continue lamenting her father.
