ἐξεκίνησας ἐκκινεῖν is used of starting game, Soph. El. 567 “ἐξεκίνησεν ποδοῖν ι ... ἔλαφον”: of rousing one from rest, Soph. Trach. 1242, and fig. of exciting pain which had been lulled, Soph. Trach. 979. Here the notion is that of a startling utterance. Cp. the use of κινεῖν in the sense of mooting subjects which should not have been touched: Eur. El. 302 “ἐπεὶ δὲ κινεῖς μῦθον,” i.e. since thou hast broached this theme: cp. Soph. OC 1526 “ἃ δ᾽ ἐξάγιστα μηδὲ κινεῖται λόγῳ.” In Eur. Med. 1317 “τί τάσδε κινεῖς κἀναμοχλεύεις πύλας;” Porson, with the author of the Christus Patiens, reads λόγους, thinking that Aristoph. Cl. 1399 “ὦ καινῶν ἐπῶν ι κινητὰ καὶ μοχλευτά” alluded to that place. So ἀκίνητα （ἔπη） = “ἀπόρρητα” Soph. OC 624, Soph. Ant. 1060 “ὄρσεις με τἀκίνητα διὰ φρενῶν φράσαι. ι κίνει, κ.τ.λ.”
