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. 608 “καὶ σοῖς ἀραία γ᾽ οὖσα τυγχάνω δόμοις,” i.e. bring a curse on it. Eur. IT 778 “（κόμισαί με） ... ἢ σοῖς ἀραία δώμασιν γενήσομαι.” Aesch. Ag. 236 “φθόγγον ἀραῖον οἴκοις.” Not μενῶν δόμοις, as though the dat. were locative, like γῇ, 1266.
