υἱέσι, the regular Attic dat. plur. (as Plat. Rep. 362E, Aristoph. Nub. 1001, etc.), from the stem “υἱυ”-, which furnished also the Attic nom. and gen. plur., “υἱεῖς, υἱέων”; and the dual “υἱῆ” (or rather “υἱεῖ”, Meisterhans p. 63), “υἱέοιν”. The Attic forms of the sing. and the acc. plur. were taken from “υἱο”-, except that “υἱέος, υἱεῖ” were alternative forms for the gen. and dat. sing. Here L has the epic υἱάσιν, from a third stem, “υἱ”-, whence the Homeric forms “υἷος, υἷι”,

υἷα, υἷε, υἷες, υἷας”: cp. Monro Hom. Gr. § 107.—The dat. of interest goes with κακὰς γυναῖκας, not with στυγῶ: cp. Aristoph. Nub. 1161πρόβολος ἐμός, σωτὴρ δόμοις, ἐχθροῖς βλάβη”.
