ἐξείλεθ̓: the midd. here suits αὑτῷ: but in ref. to θεοῖς the act. “ἐξεῖλεν” would have been more usual, cp. Ph.1431 n.: [Eur. ] Rhes. 470 “θεοῖσί τ᾽ ἀκροθίνἰ ἐξέλῃς”: Thuc.3. 50“κλήρους ... τῆς γῆς ... τοῖς θεοῖς ἱεροὺς ἐξεῖλον.—κριτόν”: so in Soph. Ai.1302Hesionè is the “ἔκκριτον δώρημα” given to Telamon as a prize of valour. Prisoners of war often became “ἱερόδουλοι” in temples (cp. Her.6. 134: Paus.3. 18. 3).
