δ᾽ ἦν τὰ πραχθέντ̓. “”= “ἅτινα”: see on 1171. “"But as to what the occurrences were, neither is the tale possible for me to tell in brief compass, nor (were) the events (brief) which happened there"”: sc.οὔτε” (“βραχέα ἦν”) “τἄργ̓”. That is, resolving the parataxis with “οὔτεοὔτε”:—“"But as to what occurred, the tale cannot be briefly told, as neither were the occurrences themselves brief."

μῦθος οὐκ ἐν βραχεῖ πάρεστιν would have sufficed: φράσαι (epexeg. inf.) further defines “πάρεστιν”.
