ἐξοδοιπορεῖν (a compound which occurs only here) has been needlessly suspected. “ὁδοιπορεῖν” in poetry is sometimes no more than “ἔρχεσθαι” or “χωρεῖν”: e.g., O. C. 1251ὧδ᾽ ὁδοιπορεῖ”: Ai. 1230κἀπ᾽ ἄκρων ὡδοιπόρεις” .—They must concert their plans while there is yet no risk of their conversation being interrupted.
