Sophocles, Oedipus at Colonus 1474, with scholion. (The line is attributed to the chorus in the mss of Sophocles but modern editions follow Adrian Turnebus [1512-1565] in assigning it to Antigone. The addressee is Oedipus.)
In Sophocles and the scholion alike, the Greek idiom (hard to convey in translation) uses the verb e)/xw with aorist participles. For this sense of sumba/llw see LSJ s.v., III.3.
