The genitive of cause is used in exclamations and is often preceded by an interjection: φεῦ τοῦ ἀνδρός alas for the man! X. C. 3.1.39, τῆς τύχης my ill luck! 2. 2. 3. In tragedy, the genitive of a pronoun or adjective after οἴμοι or ὤμοι refers to the second or third person. For the first person the nominative is used (οἴμοι τάλαινα ah me, miserable! S. Ant. 554).
