προκεῖσθαι: cp. 481: O. T. 865 “νόμοι πρόκεινται.” δημόλευστον = λευσθέντα ὑπὸ τοῦ δήμου, the epith. of the victim being transferred to the doom: Tr. 357 “ὁ ῥιπτὸς Ἰφίτου μόρος”. Cp. Aesch. Ag. 1616 “δημορριφεῖς...λευσίμους ἀράς”. Death by public stoning would mean that the transgressor was execrated as a traitor to the commonweal: see n. on O. C. 435.
