[1291] δόμοις ἀραῖος fraught with a curse for the house, making it accursed, ὡς ἠράσατο, in terms of his own curse (238 μήτ᾽ εἰσδέχεσθαι μήτε προσφωνεῖν, κ.τ.λ.), according to which anyone who was knowingly ξυνέστιος with the criminal incurred the like curse as he (270). Cp. Eur. Med. 608καὶ σοῖς ἀραία γ᾽ οὖσα τυγχάνω δόμοις,” i.e. bring a curse on it. Eur. IT 778κόμισαί με) ... σοῖς ἀραία δώμασιν γενήσομαι.Aesch. Ag. 236φθόγγον ἀραῖον οἴκοις.” Not μενῶν δόμοις, as though the dat. were locative, like γῇ, 1266.
