πῶς δ' οὐκ ἀρίστη; τίς δ' ἐναντιώσεται; τί χρὴ γενέσθαι τὴν ὑπερβεβλημένην γυναῖκα; (Euripides' Alcestis 152-54) -> How is she not noblest? Who will deny it? What must a woman have become to surpass her?

Hi all. I don't speak Greek.  I'm teaching Oedipus and my students asked me what two editor's dedications found in their book were. The first is found before Oedipus Rex:

πώς δ' ούκ αριςτη; τις δ' εναντιωσεται; τι χρή γενεσθαι τήν υπερβεβλημένην γυναικ.

This is found before Antigone:

πολλά γαρ σε θεσπίζουθ ορώ χού ψευδφημα

I don't know whether they're ancient or modern. I busted out my Greek/English dictionary and was able to find a few words, but I'm totally lost.

Could you help me?

Thanks,
Tom
