[*] 907. The participle is used in the same way in a personal construction with δῆλός εἰμι and φανερός εἰμι, in preference to an impersonal expression. So with ἐπάιστος γίνομαι in Herodotus. E.g.
- “Δῆλός τ᾽ ἦν οἰόμενος, κ.τ.λ.,” “it was evident that he thought, etc.” XEN. An. ii. 5, 27. (This is equivalent to δῆλον ἦν ὅτι οἴοιτο. See 899; 912.)
- “Ἀπικόμενοι μὲν φανεροί εἰσι ἐς Ὄασιν πόλιν,” “it is evident that they came to the city Oasis.” HDT. iii. 26.
- “Ὡς ἐπάιστος ἐγένετο τοῦτο ἐργασμένος,” “when it became known (heard of) that he had done this.” Id. ii. 119.
