[57] κείνου: so all the best MSS.; a few give “κείνωι”, which (like the variant “πυθοίατο”, here meaningless) is evidently a change to the more familiar construction. So in Od. 1.414 the right reading is probably “ἀγγελίης” (not “-ηις”) “πείθομαι”. The constr. with gen. is sufficiently attested in Herod. (i. 126, v. 29, 33, vi. 12), Thuk.vii. 73, Eur. I. A. 726. Eur. Itis doubtless analogous to the gen. with “ἀκούειν”.
