First of all, are you sure about "akouw"? In the text before me it occurs
However, the structure is problematic anyway. The problem actually is
that "akousw" (or akouw) goes with "ina" and "apwn" too! A more normal
structure would be "
hINA EITE ELTHWN KAI IDWN hYMAS, EITE APWN KAI
AKOUSAS (or AKOUWN) TA PERI HMWN, GNW hOTI STHKETE etc".
