ἀνηυφήμησεν οἰμωγῇ: the verb can bear this sense even without a defining addition: Eur. Or.1335ἀνευφημεῖ δόμος” (of wailing): Plat. Phaedo60 Aἀνηυφήμησε” (Xanthippè). The notion is that of a cry which expresses religious awe. Cp. Matthew Arnold, Mycerinus: ‘And one loud cry of grief and of amaze | Broke from his sorrowing people.’
