It is needless to take ἰσούμενον (1) as accus. absol., or (2) as governed by ἑζόμεσθ᾽ ἐφέστιοι in the sense of ἱκετεύομεν, —like φθορὰς ... ψήφους ἔθεντο Aesch. Ag. 814, or γένος ... νέωσον αἶνονAesch. Supp. 533. Musgrave conj. ἰσούμενοι as = “deeming equal,” but the midd. would mean “making ourselves equal,” like “ἀντισουμένουThuc. 3.11. Plato has ἰσούμενον as passive in Plat. Phaedrus 238e, and ἰσοῦσθαι as passive in Plat. Parm. 156b: cp. 581 ἰσοῦμαι.
