He translates ‘I swore by three stones’, but this would be an unparalleled use of the dative. ‘With three stones’ is much more likely to be correct: i.e. ‘Using the three stones I swore’. For this use of the comitativeinstrumental dative, cf. Eur. Supp. 10: ἰκτ⋯ρι θαλλῷ, and Ba. 77: ⋯σ⋯οις καθαρμοῖΣιν.
3 Oxford text (Diels). The manuscripts read διαλ⋯βη for διαβ⋯λ⋯.
