οὐχ ἁγνὸν πατεῖν. The poets can use ἁγνός either like ἱερός (e.g. Eur. Andr. 253 “ἁγνὸν τέμενος”), or, as here, like ὅσιος. For the infin. active, cp. Plat. Phaedo 62B “λόγος οὐ...ῥᾴδιος διϊδεῖν”, 90 C “λόγου ...δυνατοῦ κατανοῆσαι”: Eur. Med. 316 “λέγεις ἀκοῦσαι μαλθάκ̓” (auditu mollia): Soph. O. T. 792 “ἄτλητον...ὁρᾶν”, and n. on O. T. 1204.
