participle παυσάμενος, -η, -ον having ceased

In exercise 8.9, we are presented with the following sentence:
8. τίς εἶδε τὴν τὸν χρυσὸν δεξαμένην;
I've got no problem with the sentence, of course. It terminates in an aorist middle participle. No issue.
The only problem that I see is that he hasn't introduced aorist participles in the text yet. He has just now introduced the aorist middle indicative in this very chapter. Am I right in assuming that this is an oversight?

However, I do have a question about the first sentence in this set of exercises. It reads:
ἐδεξάμεθα ἐκεῖνον τὸν αἰχμάλωτον ὡς φίλον γενόμενον.
How should I understand the ὡς in this sentence? Should I take it causally in this case? "since he became a friend [of ours]"?
We received that prisoner as he had become a friend.
