σεισμόν, βροντήν τιν̓, some such sign as earthquake or thunder (τινά with both): thunder is the sign given at 1606. τιν̓ suggests that the god spoke merely of "signs": Oed. interprets. Cp. schol. Aristoph. Ach. 171διοσημία δέ ἐστιν παρὰ καιρὸν χειμών”. Plut. Mor. 419 Fσύγχυσιν μεγάλην περὶ τὸν ἀέρα καὶ διοσημίας πολλὰς γενέσθαι”.
