δαίμον̓: cp. 76.

ἐξειληχότες is clearly right; cp. Eur. fr. 115,

τί ποτ᾽ Ἀνδρομέδα περίαλλα κακῶν
μέρος ἐξέλαχον;

Soph. has the verb El. 760πατρῴας τύμβον ἐκλάχῃ χθονός.

ἐξειληφότες was defended by Herm. as “"having received from Eteocles,"”—the dispenser of our fortunes:— which seems far-fetched. In Ph. 1429ἀριστεἶ ἐκλαβὼν στρατεύματος” (L “ἐκβαλών”), the genit. (“"out of"”) interprets the compound.
