κλέψας, in purpose (so far as Oed. himself is concerned), though not in fact: Ai. 1126 “δίκαια γὰρ τόνδ᾽ εὐτυχεῖν, κτείναντά με”; Eur. Ion 1500 “ἔκτεινά σ᾽ ἄκους᾿” (Creusa to her living son), "doomed thee to perish." We could hardly detach κλέψας from τὸν ἱκέτην, and render: "from which having stolen (the maidens), thou didst seek to seize me, after carrying off my daughters."
