The subject to δείξει is Oedipus. Cp. Soph. Aj. 813 “χωρεῖν ἕτοιμος, κοὐ λόγῳ δείξω μόνον.” Soph. OC 146 “δηλῶ δ᾽”: “and I prove it” （viz. that I am wretched）, like τεκμήριον δέ. In Aristoph. Eccl. 933 “δείξει γε καὶ σοί: τάχα γὰρ εἶσιν ὡς ἐμέ,” a person just mentioned is the subject of both verbs, as just afterwards we have, Aristoph. Eccl. 936, δείξει τάχ᾽ αὐτός. On the other hand the verb seems really impersonal in Aristoph. Frogs 1261 “πάνυ γε μέλη θαυμαστά: δείξει δὴ τάχα” （for the subject cannot well be either μέλη or Aeschylus）: and so in Hdt. 2.134 “διέδεξε,” it was made clear: as Hdt. 2.117 “δηλοῖ,” it is manifest. In Hdt. 3.82, however, the subject to διέδεξε may be μουναρχίη. Cp. Plat. Hipp. Maj. 288b “εἰ δ᾽ ἐπιχειρήσας ἔσται καταγέλαστος, αὐτὸ δείξει” （the event will show）: cp. Plat. Theaet. 200e, and see on 341. The central door of the palace is now opened. Oedipus comes forth, leaning on attendants; the bloody stains are still upon his face.
