ἐξαγγέλλεται, proclaims on his own part ）midd.（, of himself: i.e. promises unasked, ultro pollicetur. Cp. Soph. Aj. 1376 “ἀγγέλλομαι ... εἶναι φίλος,” “I offer friendship.” Eur. has thus used ἐξαγγ. even where metre permitted the more usual ἐπαγγέλλομαι: Eur. Heraclid. 531 “κἀξαγγέλλομαι ι θνῄσκειν,” I offer to die.
