ἐφαίνετο τελῶν (without “ὡς”)= “"was manifestly intending to perform"”: “ἐφαίνετο ὡς τελῶν”=“"appeared as one intending to perform,"” “ὡς” marking the aspect in which he presented himself to their minds. Ai. 326 “καὶ δῆλός ἐστιν ὥς τι δρασείων κακόν”. For the imperf., cp. Aesch. Ag. 593 “λόγοις τοιούτοις πλαγκτὸς οὖσ᾽ ἐφαινόμην”, by such reasonings I appeared (was made out to be) in error.
