εἴτε οἶσθα ἀλκήν, ἀκούσας φήμην θεῶν του （by having heard a voice from some god）, εἴτε οἶσθα ἀλκὴν ἀπ᾽ ἀνδρός που. We might take ἀπ᾽ ἀνδρὸς with ἀλκήν, but it is perh. simpler to take it with οἶσθα: cp. 398 ἀπ᾽ οἰωνῶν μαθών, Thuc. 1.125 “ἐπειδὴ ἀφ᾽ ἁπάντων ἤκουσαν τὴν γνώμην”: though παρά （or πρός） τινος is more frequent.
