My question is about two specific potential examples, marked below in Kovac’s text. I am wondering if both of these are in fact examples. The first one looks good but second one looks kind of dicey because of word order, translation, etc. On line 1024 if σοι is the agent of δραστέον then what exactly are the contents of the relative clause? Perhaps it is best to construe σοι with δοκεῖ.
Euripides ΙΦΙΓΕΝΕΙΑ Η ΕΝ ΑΥΛΙΔΙ
David Kovacs 2003
ἱκέτευ᾿ ἐκεῖνον πρῶτα μὴ κτείνειν τέκνον·
ἢν δ᾿ ἀντιβαίνῃ, πρὸς ἐμέ σοι πορευτέον.
[οὐ γάρ, τὸ χρῇζον εἰ πίθοι, τοὐμὸν χρεὼν
χωρεῖν· ἔχει γὰρ τοῦτο τὴν σωτηρίαν.
κἀγώ τ᾿ ἀμείνων πρὸς φίλον γενήσομαι,
στρατός τ᾿ ἂν οὐ μέμψαιτό μ᾿, εἰ τὰ πράγματα
λελογισμένως πράσσοιμι μᾶλλον ἢ σθένει.]
καλῶς δὲ κρανθὲν κἂν ἐμοῦ χωρὶς τόδε
σοί τ᾿ ἂν γένοιτο καὶ φίλοις πρὸς ἡδονήν.
ὡς σώφρον᾿ εἶπας· δραστέον δ᾿ ἅ σοι δοκεῖ.
ἢν δ᾿ αὖ τι μὴ πράσσωμεν ὧν ἐγὼ θέλω,
ποῦ σ᾿ αὖθις ὀψόμεσθα, ποῖ χρή μ᾿ ἀθλίαν
ἐλθοῦσαν εὑρεῖν σὴν χέρ᾿ ἐπίκουρον κακῶν;
First beg him not to kill his child. If he resists, you must come to me. [If entreaty prevails on him, no need for me to intervene: entreaty by itself wins her life. That way I will prove to be kindlier to my friend, and the army will not find fault with me if I handle things cleverly and not by might.] If fortune smiles, even without my aid this affair will turn out well for you and your family.
What sensible words! We must do as you think best. But if I fail in my attempt, where can I find you again? Where must I go in my misery to find your hand to rescue me from trouble?
