[191] περιβόατον could not mean “crying loudly”: the prose use (“famous” or “notorious” Thuc. 6.31) confirms the pass. sense here. ἀντιάζω, attacking: Hdt. 4.80ἠντίασάν μιν” (acc.) οἱ Θρήϊκες. Aesch. has the word once only, as = “to meet” (not in a hostile sense), Aesch. Ag. 1557πατέρ᾽ ἀντιάσασα”: Eur. always as = “to entreat”; and so Soph. El. 1009. Dindorf reads φλέγει με περιβόατον (the accus. on his own conject.), ἀντιάζω (suggested by Herm.), “I pray that” etc. But the received text gives a more vivid picture.
