The word on which the possessive genitive depends may be represented by the article: ἀπὸ τῆς ἑαυτῶν from their own country (γῆς) T. 1.15 (cp. cross1027 b). A word for dwelling (οἰκία_, δόμος, and also ἱερόν) is perhaps omitted after ἐν, εἰς, and sometimes after ἐξ. Thus, ἐν Ἀρίφρονος at Ariphron's P. Pr. 320a, ἐν Διονύ_σου (scil. ἱερῷ) at the shrine of Dionysus D. 5.7, εἰς διδασκάλου φοιτᾶν to go to school X. C. 2.3.9, ἐκ Πατροκλέους ἔρχομαι I come from Patroclus's Ar. Plut. 84. So, in Homer, εἰν (εἰς) Ἀίδα_ο.
