[257] ἐξ ἄκρης κτλ.: prominent as contrasted with the battle-field. Const. with “χεῖρας ἀνασχεῖν”. cf. “τὼ δ᾽ αὖτ̓ ἐκ δίφρου γουναζέσθην Λ 130.

χεῖρας ἀνασχεῖν: equiv. to “εὔξασθαι”, since this was the usual attitude in prayer. cf. “Ε 174, πολλά κεν ἀθανάτοισι φίλας ἀνὰ χεῖρας ἀείραι” (“he would pray fervently”) 7.130. Thus the phrase takes an indirect object.
