μηχαναῖς. μαχαναῖς in Ai. 181 and “μαχανᾷ” in Aesch. Th. 133 are the only instances in which Tragedy gives a Doric form to words from this stem.— ἀγραύλου, having his “αὐλή”, or dwelling, in the open country, as opposed to a domesticated animal: Eur. Bacch. 1187 “πρέπει γ᾽ ὥστε θὴρ ἄγραυλος φόβῃ”. For the combination with ὀρεσσιβάτα cp. Plat. Crat. 394E “τὸ θηριῶδες τῆς φύσεως καὶ τὸ ἄγριον αὐτοῦ καὶ τὸ ὀρεινόν”.
