Who sent Paul and Barnabus?

In Acts 15:2 the subject of ETAXAN is not exactly obvious. I read and reread
and read again Acts15:1-5 and the subject of ETAXAN was still not obvious. It
almost looked like the subject was the TINES from 15:1 but I ruled that out as
illogical. H.A.W. Meyer says the subject is ADELFOUS from 15:1, but I don't
find that compelling either.

Codex Bezae has a long expansion just before ETAXAN where the subject is
provided very explicitly but I am not convinced that the Bezae reading is original.

Can anyone give me an argument supporting Meyer's reading? Meyer provides no
argument, just announces it like it is self evident. Do all German NT scholars
do this or only the ones in my library? BTW, I appreciate Meyer a lot. Like
him so well I bought two complete sets of his Handbook and gave one of them
away to an old friend.
