ἀφιγμένος, not, “"because,"” but, “"while,"” he has come. Besides his public claim (632), Oed. has two personal claims, (1) as the suppliant of the Eumenides, (2) as a visitor who can make a valuable return to Athens for protecting him.

δασμός, usu. “"tribute"” (O. T. 36, and so in Xen.); here fig., “"recompense."
