It wasn't conceivable to me, but since it was to Carl, the answer to your 
question is: Yes.

Another question is: Is this form likely to be used as a middle in this text? I 
would say: no.

Although the middle aorist of TASSW is used to refer to an arrangement set up by 
and for the benefit of the subject, such an idea is unlikely here. I think 
others have made this arrangement for them. What their active involvement in 
receiving this "appointment" might be, is beyond the scope of the grammar.
