δόμων goes with Κάδμου also: cp. O. T. 417 “μητρός τε καὶ τοῦ σοῦ πατρός”: O. C. 1399 “κελεύθου τῆς τ᾽ ἐμῆς δυσπραξίας”. Cadmus founded Thebes; at a later time, Amphion (Niobe's husband) and his brother Zethus built a wall round it (Apoll. Rhod. 1. 740 ff.). The Thebans are πάροικοι (neighbours) δόμων, as dwelling around the “Καδμεία”, the Theban acropolis which was the seat of Cadmus (cp. O. T. 20 n.).
