εἴκειν ἤρεσκεν. The antecedent to “” is “ταῦτα”, a cognate acc.,—‘to yield in regard to’ what the judges decided: cp. O. C. 1178τάδ᾽ εἰκαθεῖν”: ib. 172 “εἴκοντας δεῖ”.—Others suppose the antecedent to be “τούτοις” (cp. 1050). But, for Greek idiom, such a dat. ought to denote the judges, not the judgment.
