τοῦτο is in appos. with τον Ἀλκμήνας πόθιναίει. The objection to taking καρῦξαι as governing a double acc. (like “λέγειν τινά τι”) is, here, that the emphasis on τοῦτο would then be unsuitable; since, under the circumstances, the knowledge which they desire about Heracles can be only, “πόθι ναίει”.
