[532] ἐν σκότῳ ... ὀψοίαθ᾽, i.e. οὐκ ὄψονται: see on 997. The other verbs being plural (with κύκλοι for subject), the subject toἔχρῃζεν cannot be ἄρθρα κύκλων, but only Oed. He had craved to learn his true parentage (782 ff.). ὀψοίατο, γνωσοίατο, Ionic, as Soph. OC 44δεξαίατο,” 921 πυθοίατο, 945 δεξοίατο: Soph. El. 211ἀποναίατο”: Aesch. Pers. 369φευξοίατο,” 451 ἐκσωζοίατο: Eur. Her. 547ἐκτισαίατο”: Eur. Hel. 159ἀντιδωρησαίατο.” So Thuc. 3.13 can say ἐφθάραται Ἀθηναῖοι ... αἱ δ᾽ ἐφ᾽ ἡμῖν τετάχαται (and 4. 31, 5. 6, 7. 4).
