φρονοῦντα γὰρ: ‘yes, for...’: the “γὰρ” of assent, O. T. 1117 n.

ἐξέστην with acc., as meaning ‘avoid’: Dem. or. 20 § 10οὐδένα πώποτε κίνδυνον ἐξέστησαν” (a phrase which occurs also in or. 23 § 76): Plat. Phileb.p. 43 A “ἀλλὰ γὰρ ὑπεκστῆναι τὸν λόγον ἐπιφερόμενον τοῦτον” “βούλομαι” (‘to elude the brunt of this argument’). Cp. Thuc. 2. 88§ 2 “μηδένα ὄχλον...ὑποχωρεῖν” (‘to face any numbers’). But “ἐξίστασθαι” takes a dat. when it means to ‘make place for’ (672), or ‘give way to’ ( Soph. Ph. 1053).
