παρέστιος. Cp. O. T. 249 n., where Oed. invokes a curse on himself, should the murderer become “ξυνέστιος” with him: also ib. 240 n. Hor. Carm. 3. 2. 26vetabo, qui Cereris sacrum Vulgarit arcanae, sub isdem Sit trabibus, fragilemve mecum Solvat phaselon.” Schneidewin cp. also Eur. fr. 848 (the dishonourer of parents) “μή μοι γένοιτο μήτε συνθύ̀της ποτέ, κ.τ.λ.”, and Callim. Hymn. 6. 117 (to Demeter)μὴ τῆνος ἐμὶν φίλος, ὅς τοι ἀπεχθής, εἴη, μήθ᾽ ὁμότοιχος.

ἴσον φρονῶν, ‘may he not become like-minded with me,’ is another way of saying, ‘may I never come to share his sentiments.’ Cp. Il. 15.50ἶσον ἐμοὶ φρονέουσα”, ‘likeminded with me’: Aristoph. Av. 634ἐμοὶ φρονῶν ξυνῳδά”. In a narrower sense (not intended here) “τὰ αὐτὰ φρονεῖν” was said of agreement in politics, idem sentire de republica: Her. 1.60τὠυτὸ φρονήσαντες”, ‘having made common cause’ (the “στασιῶται” of Megacles and Lycurgus).
