εὐκταῖα … ἢ ᾿πὸ μαντείας: <*> may have vowed them before the event: or, after it, an oracle may have demanded them. Thus, after the battle of Salamis, the Delphian Apollo claimed a thank-offering from the Aeginetans (Her. 8.122). φαίνων, presenting them, in fulfillment of the promise. This is a rare sense of the verb, but somewhat like that in O. C. 721 “νῦν σὸν τὰ λαμπρὰ ταῦτα δὴ φαίνειν ἔπη” (n.), ‘to make those bright praise<*> seen in deeds.’
