845. IX. That in which the action of the verb consists. E.g.

Τόδ᾽ εἶπε φωνῶν, “thus he spake saying.” AESCH. Ag. 205. Ὅσ᾽ ἡμᾶς ἀγαθὰ δέδρακας εἰρήνην ποιήσας, “what blessings you have done us in making peace!” Pac. 1199. Εὖ γ᾽ ἐποίησας ἀναμνήσας με, “you did well in reminding me.” PLAT. Phaed. 60 C.

See other examples under 150, where the peculiar force of the aorist participle in such cases, denoting the same time with the verb, is illustrated.
