προὐβάλετο ‘Had proposed,’ ‘had put forward.’

ἀπηγόρευεν ‘He gave him notice not to pronounce the award.’ Perhaps this means, that he would not hold himself bound by his decision; or, perhaps, he sent him a notice that he did not accept him as arbitrator.

[The imperfect is formed from ἀγορεύω as in 33 § 31 ἀπηγόρευεν ...τῷ Ἀριστοκλεῖ καθ᾽ αὑτοῦ μὴ γιγνώσκειν ἄνευ τῶν συνδιαιτητῶν. Cf. 37 § 25. The corresponding aorist is ἀπεῖπεν (see note on Or. 55 § 4); hence the reading of the MSS (ἀπηγόρευσεν) is probably wrong. S.]
