ἐκκεκηρῦχθαι = προκεκηρῦχθαι, as in 203. The compound with “ὲκ” usu. = ‘to banish by proclamation’ (O. C. 430 n.).

τὸ μὴκαλύψαι, instead of the ordinary “μὴ καλύψαι”: cp. 443: O. C. 1739ἀπέφυγε... ...τὸ μὴ πίτνειν κακῶς”. Though “τὸ μὴ καλύψαι” might be viewed as subject to “ἐκκεκηρῦχθαι”, the latter was probably felt as an impersonal pass. The addition of the art. to the infin. is freq. in drama: cp. 78, and O. C. 47 n.
