892. As λανθάνω is active and means to escape the notice of, it must have an object expressed or understood. When none is expressed, sometimes πάντας is understood, and sometimes a reflexive referring to the subject. Thus ἔλαθε ποῦτο ποιήσας may mean either he did this without any one's knowing it (sc. πάντας), or he did this unconsciously (sc. ἑαυτόν).
