τοιαῦτ̓, introducing the ground for the statement; cp. 164 n.— αἱμοβαφῆ: cp. 95 “ἔβαψας ἔγχος εὖ..;” χρηστήρια, with tragic pathos, since the word denoted holy sacrifices to the gods (properly, before consulting an oracle): Aesch. Theb. 230“σφάγια καὶ χρηστήρια ι θεοῖσιν ἔρδειν”. Cp. Aesch. Ag. 645“παιᾶνα τόνδ᾽ Ερινύων”.
