ἐν, instrumental ( Ant. 764 n.).

φίλαισι, as opp. to “ξέναισι” (1141). Cp. Pope's Elegy, vv. 47 ff.: ‘What can atone, oh ever-injured shade! | Thy fate unpity'd, and thy rites unpaid? | No friend's complaint, no kind domestic tear | Pleas'd thy pale ghost, or grac'd thy mournful bier. | By foreign hands thy dying eyes were clos'd, | By foreign hands thy decent limbs compos'd, | By foreign hands thy humble grave adorn'd, | By strangers honour'd, and by strangers mourn'd!’
