ἀκόντων, epithet of the agent, instead of that proper to the act (“ἀκουσίων”): 977: O. T. 1229 “κακὰ ἑκόντα κοὐκ ἄκοντα”. Cp. 74, 267. ἀΐοντες αὐδάν, "perceiving," i.e. "being aware of,""having heard," the report of his involuntary deeds. Cp. 792 “κλύω”: Thuc. 6.20 “ὡς ἐγὼ ἀκοῇ αἰσθάνομαι”.—Not: (1) "on hearing (from him) the mention of his deeds" — as implied in his name: nor (2) "on hearing his first utterance," as if ἀκόντ. ἔργων could be caus. gen. with οὐκ ἀνέτλατε.
