πότερα περιίδω deliberative subj., to which answers εἴπω: the tense being, as usu., the aor., since the prospective act will be done once for all, not continued or repeated. But Eur. Ion 758, εἴπωμεν σιγῶμεν; ‘shall we speak [once for all: aor.]; or keep silence?’ [pres. of the continued act].

ἀλιτ. τῶν θεῶν For genit., cp. Aeschin. Ctes. § 157, ἀλιτήριος τῆς Ἑλλάδος: Thuc. I. 26, τὸ ἄγος τῆς θεᾶς.
