αὐτοῖν, not dat. of the agent (very rare except with perf., plpf., or fut. pf. pass.), but dat. of interest ("so far as they were concerned"): cp. Ph. 1030 “τέθνηχ᾽ ὑμῖν πάλαι”: Aesch. PV 12 “σφῷν μὲν ἐντολὴ Διὸς ι ἔχει τέλος δή”. ἐξεκηρύχθην, by a proclamation of Creon (as regent) to the citizens—like that which Oed. himself had made (O. T. 216 ff.). “κήρυγμα” is used of the royal edict, Ant. 8, 161, etc. Cp. Lys. or. 12 § 95 (of those banished by the Thirty) “ἐξεκηρύχθητε...ἐκ τῆς πόλεως”.
