εἰ φωνὴν λάβοι: cp. Aesch. Ag. 37(“οἶκος”) “εἰ φθογγὴν λάβοι”. In the Odyssey the departed spirits are conceived unable to recognise or to accost the living, until they have tasted the offerings of blood (11. 153).—Similarly Oedipus imagines how Laïus would testify, if he could return to life ( O. C. 998).
