δαΐα, pass., ‘afflicted’ (“δαίω”, to burn), as in Aesch. Pers. 280, etc. For the act. sense, ‘hostile,’ which is more frequent, see above, Aesch. Pers. 365.The epic form “δήϊος” (which never means ‘wretched’) is foreign to Tragedy, which, however, admits “ἀδῃος” ( Soph. O. C. 1533) and “δῃοῦν” (ib. 1319). γένος, ‘being,’ ‘creature,’ an epic use: Il. 9. 538(Artemis) “ἡ δὲ χολωσα-” “μένη δῖον γένος ἰοχέαιρα”: ib. 6. 180 (the Chimaera) “ἡ δ᾽ ἄρ᾽ ἔην θεῖον γένος οὐδ᾽ ἀνθρώπων.” θροεῖ: 67 n.
