Ἀτρείδαις. As “τέκνων” in 1071 shows, the ref. is to Agamemnon only; for the plur., cp. 1419οἱ γᾶς ὑπαὶ κείμενοι”: Aesch. Cho. 49τοὺς γᾶς” | “νέρθεν”.

ἀχόρευτα: cp. O. C. 1222 f. (death) “ἀνυμέναιος” | “ἄλυρος ἄχορος”: Suppl. 681 (war) “ἄχορον ἀκίθαριν”: Eum. 331ὕμνος” (of the Furies)..“ἀφόρμικτος”: Eur. Tro. 121ἄτας..ἀχορεύτους”: I. T. 146 “ἀλύροις ἐλέγοις”.—The ὀνείδη are the dishonours of the house,—not reproaches to the spirit of Agamemnon for inactivity; though it is implied, of course, that now more than ever his aid is needed.
