ἄξιαι … ἀμυναθεῖν, worthy that one should succour them. The forms in “-θον” have not always an aoristic force, e.g. in El. 1014 “εἰκαθεῖν” has no such force (cp. on O. T. 651): but here, at least, as 461 “ἐπάξιος...κατοικτίσαι” shows, an aorist inf. is not less fitting than a present. For the act. inf., see on 461.
