"O dear Oedipus, you [all] have come forth desiring things which are intimate and not unknown to me. For well I know that you are all ill; and, being ill, it is not possible that anyone of you is as sick as I am. For your pain comes upon each one of you alone and to no other; but my spirit grieves for the city and me and you alike."[2]
And in the Epigrams: "Pan, receive of threefold brothers nets from a threefold hunt."[3]
Greek Original:
Γνωτός: ἀδελφός. καὶ Γνωτή, ἀδελφή. ὦ φίλ' Οἰδίπους, γνωτὰ κοὐκ ἄγνωτά μοι προσήλθετ' ἱμείροντες. εὖ γὰρ οἶδ' ὅτι νοσεῖτε πάντες: καὶ νοσοῦντες, ὡς ἐγὼ οὐκ ἔστιν ὑμῶν ὅστις ἐξ ἴσου νοσεῖ. τὸ μὲν γὰρ ὑμῶν ἄλγος εἰς ἕν' ἔρχεται μόνον καθ' αὑτὸν, κοὐδέν' ἄλλον: ἡ δ' ἐμὴ ψυχὴ πόλιν τε κἀμὲ καὶ σ' ὁμοῦ στένει. καὶ ἐν Ἐπιγράμμασι: γνωτῶν τρισσατίων ἐκ τρισσατίης λίνα θήρης δέχνυσο Πάν.
[1] cf. the scholia to Homer, Iliad 3.174, where γνωτούς occurs.
[2] Sophocles, Oedipus Tyrannus 58-64 (web address 1 below). These words are spoken by Oedipus himself, and they begin ὦ παῖδες οἰκτροί ("o piteous children"); so the Suda's ὦ φίλ' Οἰδίπους is doubly unacceptable. Adopt Dobree's conjecture, noted by Adler, Σοφοκλῆς Οἰδίποδι ("Sophocles in his Oedipus").
[3] Greek Anthology 6.12.1-2. (One of the brothers has caught birds, one beasts, one fish.)
