δεῖ μοί τινος means I have need of something. In place of the dative ( cross1467) an accusative of the person is rarely allowed in poetry on the analogy of δεῖ with the infinitive ( cross1985): οὐ πόνου πολλοῦ με δεῖ I have need of no great toil E. Hipp. 23 (often in E.). The thing needed is rarely put in the accusative: εἴ τι δέοι τῷ χορῷ if the chorus need anything Ant. 6.12 (here some regard τὶ as nominative). Cp. cross1562.
