Hi everyone

While looking at Joseph Haigler's question I noticed something else that
seems strange to me.  Why is the complement of PROSKUNEW first dative, then
accusative?

v.23 PROSKUNHSOUSIN TWi PATRI (dat.) and then TOUS PROSKUNOUNTAS AUTON
(acc.)
v.24 TOUS PROSKUNOUNTAS AUTON (acc.)

Is this usual, or is there a difference in meaning, or are these just two
equally valid options (six of one or half a dozen of the other ...)?

Regards
Manie van den Heever
