ὦν ἱκόμην ἄτιμον = ἄτιμον τούτων ἃ ἱκόμην, not graced in respect of those things （responses） for which I had come: Eur. Andr. 1014 “ἄτιμον ὀργάναν χέρα τεκτοσύνας,” not rewarded for its skill. For ἃ ἱκόμην （cogn. accus. denoting the errand, like ἔρχομαι ἀγγελίαν） cp. 1005 τοῦτ᾽ ἀφικόμην: Soph. OC 1291 “ἃ δ᾽ ἦλθον ... θέλω λέξαι”: Aristoph. Pl. 966 “ὅ τι μάλιστ᾽ ἐλήλυθας”: Plat. Prot. 310e “ἀλλ᾽ αὐτὰ ταῦτα καὶ νῦν ἥκω παρὰ σέ” （where the acc. is cogn. to ἥκω, not object to the following διαλεχθῇς）.
