φάσκειν δ̓: inf. as imperat.: cp. 57. For this use of “φάσκειν”, as= ‘deem,’ cp. O. T. 462 n.

ἀκοῇ τε κλύειν. If we had simply, “αὐδήν τε κλύειν, λεύσσειν τ᾽ ὄψιν”, the misplacing of the first “τε” would be of a common kind (cp. O. T. 258 n.): the further peculiarity here is that “ἀκοῇ τε κλύειν” suggests “ὀφθαλμοῖς τε λεύσσειν”, as if the object of both verbs were the person.
