[1298] ὅσα ... προσέκυρσα I know no other example of an accus. after προσκυρεῖν, which usu. takes the dat.: but the compound can at least claim the privilege of the simple κυρεῖν. The neut. plur. accus. of pronouns and adjectives can stand after τυγχάνειν and κυρεῖν, not as an accus. directly governed by the verb, but rather as a species of cognate or adverbial accus.: Soph. Phil. 509ἆθλ᾽ οἷα μηδεὶς τῶν ἐμῶν τύχοι φίλων”: Soph. OC 1106αἰτεῖς τεύξει” (which need not be explained by attraction): Aesch. Lib. 711τυγχάνειν τὰ πρόσφορα,Aesch. Lib. 714κυρούντων ... τὰ πρόσφορα”: Eur. Phoen. 1666οὐ γὰρ ἂν τύχοις τάδε”: cp. Munro on Aesch. Ag. 1228 ff.οἶα ... τεύξεται” in Journ. Phil. 11.134. In Eur. Hipp. 746τέρμονα κύρων” is not similar, since κύρων = “reaching, ” and the accus. is like that after ἀφικνεῖσθαι.
