ἁγνὰ θύματα: cp. Od.21. 258“ἑορτὴ τοῖο θεοῖο” | “ἁγνή”: Eur. Ion243“ἁγνὰ Λοξίου χρηστήρια.—πατρῴῳ Ζηνὶ”, Zeus as the god of his fathers, the protector of his race, rather than with ref. to the personal relationship: so again in 753.— τῆς ἁλώσεως, for it, causal gen. (here akin to the gen. of price), with the whole phrase “θύματα ῥέξῃ”: cp. O.T. 47 “ὡς σὲ νῦν μὲν ἥδε γῆ” | “σωτῆρα κλῄζει τῆς πάρος προθυμίας”.
