[702] λέγ᾽ speak. if you can make a clear statement (εἰ σαφῶς ἐρεῖς) in imputing the blame of the feud: i.e. if you are prepared to explain the vague οἷα (701) by defining the provocation.

ἐγκαλεῖν νεῖκός τινι= to charge one with (beginning) a quarrel: as Soph. Phil. 328χόλοντινὸςκατ᾽ αὐτῶν ἐγκαλῶν,” charging them with having provoked your anger at a deed.
