ἐξέβης, ‘digressed’ from the matter in hand: cp. Dem. or. 18 § 211ἐπανελθεῖν οὖν, ὁπόθεν ἐνταῦθ᾽ ἐξέβην, βούλομαι”. I. T. 781 (Orestes to Iphigeneia, whom he has interrupted by an unguarded exclamation) “οὐδέν: πέραινε δ̓: ἐξέβην γὰρ ἄλλοσε” (‘my thoughts had wandered’).

λόγῳ is better here than λόγων. The latter is more suitable in such a phrase as “ποῖ λόγων ἀμηχανῶν” | “ἔλθω”; El. 1174.
