ὅρκων: the oaths sworn to Tyndareus by the suitors of his daughter Helen, “ὅτου γυνὴ γένοιτο Τυνδαρὶς κόρη”, | “τούτῳ συναμυνεῖν, εἴ τις ἐκ δόμων λαβὼν ι οἴχοιτο” ( I. A. 61). Thuc. 1. 9§ 1 “Ἀγαμέμνων τέ μοι δοκεῖ τῶν τότε δυνάμει προὔχων καὶ οὐ τοσοῦτον τοῖς Τυνδάρεω ὅρκοις κατειλημμένους τοὺς Ἑλένης μνηστῆρας ἄγων τὸν στόλον ἀγεῖραι”. In Soph. Ph. 72Odysseus says that (unlike the other chiefs) Neoptolemus came to Troy, “ἔνορκος οὐδενί”.
