κτησίου, ‘belonging to the household,’—i.e., to a flock kept near the house, to supply food, and victims for sacrifice. “Ζεὺς Κτήσιος” was more especially the tutelar god of household property; hence domestic slaves stand “κτησίου βωμοῦ πέλας” ( Aesch. Ag.1038). The epithet here does not, however, directly allude to him, as if meaning, ‘devoted to the “Κτήσιος”.’
