κἀκ τῶνδ᾽ ἄρχομαι. Cp. Ant. 63“ἀρχόμεσθ᾽ ἐκ κρεισσόνων”: O. C. 67“ἐκ τοῦ κατ᾽ ἄστυ βασιλέως τάδ᾽ ἄρχεται”. Hellen. 3. 1. 6 “ἐκείνῳ δ᾽ αὕτη ἡ χώρα δῶρον ἐκ βασιλέως ἐδόθη”. In such phrases “ἐκ” is somewhat more than a mere equivalent for “ὑπό” (124). It suggests the head and fount of authority; a sense fitting here.
