ἱστορούμενος=“ἐρωτώμενος”, a comparatively rare use of this passive; so Her.1. 24κληθέντας ἱστορέεσθαι εἴ τι λέγοιεν.—οὐ σιγηλὸς εἶ”: as Creon calls the “φύλαξ” a “λάλημα”, Ant.320.Possibly an echo of Aesch. Suppl.567λέγ̓, εἴ τι βούλει: καὶ γὰρ οὐ σιγηλὸς εἶ”: where the phrase alludes to the rhetoric of the herald Copreus.
