[Meaning] they considered of no value.[1] "They did not disparage that improvisatory muse of the Cretans, a sacrifice as a kind of entreaty."[2]
Greek Original:
*)ecefau/lisan: par' ou)de\n e)logi/santo. oi( de\ ou)k e)cefau/lisan th\n tw=n *krhtw=n au)tosxe/dion e)kei/nhn mou=san, oi(=a dh/ pou lith/n tina qusi/an.
[1] Likewise in ps.-Zonaras. The headword is aorist indicative active of e)kfauli/zw, third person plural (cf. epsilon 707 and under kappa 2161). It is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[2] Aelian fr. 252a Domingo-Forasté (254 Hercher); cf. epsilon 1388 -- which shows that the entreaty was accepted as a sacrifice, not the other way around -- and lambda 620.
